Example text

Throughout this book the central theme will be the application of the movement of the down block and the various ways this simple motion can be utilized in the various self-defense scenarios. DEFENSE AGAINST A KICK TECHNIQUE 1 The most basic of applications for a down block is often described as a block to a front kick.

Figure 1-1 : Here your opponent is facing you in a free-sparring stance, with a considerable distance between the two of you.

In the end, you are responsible for making the most of your limited time--of getting the 80 percent effect for your 20 percent of time. You'll find that picking and choosing how you spend your time and whom you spend it with can be a very powerful tool in your development as a martial artist. I hope the relevance of this discussion of the 80/20 rule is obvious.

7t In simple terms, go no sen means that once your opponent attacks, you defend yourself against the attack. While this sounds simple, in reality, blocking a fast punch can be difficult, if not impossible. The closer you are to your opponent, the harder it is to react quickly enough to his aggressive actions. If your opponent can reach out and touch your body without moving his feet, or shifting his body weight, he will be able to initiate an attack that will be virtually impossible to defend against.
