Response to Re: Sparring (freestyle) vs. techniques


Strike Set 1 has good stuff, hand combinations that can be synched up with up-clock and down-clock foot maneuver that take advantage of the area of the angle.

Coordination set 1, (thank you Pat Salantri) is the quintessential blitz pattern that can be synched to stance set and the foot work od Finger set2.

Flapping elbow for point of origin defense (strike set 2 also).

I too believe in the ranges (out of/within/ConPen/ConManip) and how each ideal phase concept has specific position recognition points during sparring. If you can read the opponent's mind great, but I try to understand what each of my opponent/s posture, stance and hand positioning has given them to use and taken away. Distance, timing and intent.

But then Richard said it already. I like the machine gun sentences in his posts. Makes you think and respond to each one individually. Must be fun trying to hit him. By the way, isn't the point of training in a martial art NOT to get hit?

Sometimes I think I am watching Ron Ely switch from style to style in the movie Doc Savage with some of the talk here. Check it out, the posturing is hilarious.
