This past Thursday there was just a couple of us who have been training in the art for a while. So we took some time and discussed hand positioning with in rolling the pearl posture in relation to dealing with multiple opponents. This was a very interesting discussion as we touched on a number of principals in the art.
After our discussion we decided to look at how to deal with a variety of kicks while circling. This was a really informative learning lesson, as we found that similiar themes occurred among each of the different kicks. For the most part how we handled a front kick, side or back spin kick with very similiarly. By using basic footwork to get us slightly away from the kick, while moving closer “attacker”. While other variations of kicks we only needed to make minor adjustments to how we handled the other kicks.
The more I experiment with this art I find the less I need to learn in the way of techniques. I just need to get really good with the basic concepts and principles and make them natural and fluid.
