I understand the value in it but I can’t seem to visualize it. April 22, 2019 Reply Alexandre Magno Dias Pinto Thank you, Jesse! This exercise seems very good for people like me, who usually get static with the legs movements. April 23, 2019 Reply Luqman Hakim Thank you very much for this free but valuable information!!!!!!!!!!

I have recently returned to MA as a nearly 50 yr old , so its been a lot of years off and i want to know how far it is possible to get my splits ? April 25, 2019 Reply Longfei Jiang Great video, especially the dropping concept. In my martial art, we are taught to sink to draw power from the ground, and this totally connects the concept of sinking and mobility for me. Thanks!!

Well, you can if you are on the top of flight of stairs. May 10, 2019 Reply Simon's Fight Club Oss Sensei! Sensei do you have any suggestions on how to practice kicks like( Mawashi giri , ura-mawashi giri, ashi barai or some other moves which puts pressure on one foot while doing) in CONCRETE FLOOR. In India 80% people don't have dojo so we practice on road side, fields or a place with concrete floor and we call it our dojo. And as we are practicing bare foot, we peep our foot skin of while doing these trainings.I would be very happy if you suggest me any options.Thank You Sensei. Oss!

T Juliano Im 225 muscular build my feet is planted on ground lol i often get hard counter attack because of this, do you have any tips for heavy set guys like me? I do kyokushin tho May 16, 2019 Reply Gabriele Morasso Tanks master!! OSS!! May 18, 2019 Reply Ian Foote When I think about staying in motion during a fight, my motivations are threefold. The first is to shift levels. If you have grappling game, you want to be able to attack the upper body, the middle body, and the legs, and by shifting levels, you threaten all three. The second is to threaten the opponents flank. It's easier to hit them from behind than it is to hit them head on if you can, so, by rotating around your opponent, you threaten their flank. The third is to load your body with kinetic energy that you can channel into strikes, which you achieve by rotating your body. If you're standing still, you need to pull power from your musculature to deliver strikes, but if you're already in motion, you can just reach out at touch them, and channel all the kinetic energy you're already carrying into your opponent. I learned these principles through my training in Freestyle Wrestling and Capoeira. Though, I also have training in No-Gi BJJ and Muay Thai.

I get what you're saying but I think it's very important that beginners understand that it's not bouncing up and down like a video game character but rather from place to place so you're making use of the fighting space you have or changing the angle of approach to create doubt and uncertainty in your opponent's mind about how you're actually going to attack. Ultimately we want them to hesitate in some way to open up opportunities to strike or taken down etc. In Kendo we avoid bouncing as much as possible because we need to be able to use the full range of motion of our left calf to drive forward, however we still use this dynamic approach to footwork of manipulation of distance, centre line and timing to create clear opportunities to strike. So this kind of 1- 2 timing of the movement is important as opposed to both feet being off the ground at once. Would you agree with that from the perspective of your discipline ? August 27, 2019 Reply tristan hann Lol. Should have watched the full video before my long comment. Apologies I see you've covered these points now. Top job.

Historical Fencing confirms! thanks for sharing <3 October 6, 2019 Reply Ming Yeung Cheung When I was young, I bounce a lot. But now, I just don't want to move my lazy ass October 7, 2019 Reply timtak1 Thank you. I like the drill at the end and will try it today. Our sensei encourages us to change direction using a rear leg swing which would the rear foot in a different quadrant in your cross very briefly but, I will try some combination of the two. Similar to your crossed lines, there is also the Ingle Gym (Naseem Hamed etc) " (parallel) lines" where they bounce along from orthodox to southpaw, forward and backwards, but I have yet to figure out what they are doing. I will post a link. October 9, 2019 Reply timtak1 Here is the vaguely related exercise https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MnVQaT4jzA&feature=youtu.beperformed at the famous Ingle boxing gym by British world champion boxers such as the amazing Naseem Hamed, Bomber Graham, and Johnny Nelson. They would always "do the lines" for twenty minutes or more when arriving at the gym bouncing along forward and backwards changing between orthodox and southpaw. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azEatWLF9hII would be very grateful if you would analyse the "lines" exercise.

October 10, 2019 Reply Gamer X If I stand still, I know exactly where the opponent will hit. if I move to different sides, I don't know where and when the opponent will strike. After all, I have difficulty observing his body. October 13, 2019 Reply The Culture & Anarchy Podcast “What kind of a deal?” October 13, 2019 Reply Satria Kurniawan Djaenal Bouncing for me is more about shifting your weight from one foot to the other using your toes and I use back and forth bouncing to chamber my jabs and straights. I don't usually bounce up and down since I don't really see the point unless you go down low enough to at least shift your height by a head, and I find quick ducking and diagonal stepping to be faster for evasion. That's a nice exercise to practice shifting positions, though. I'll give it a whirl.

December 8, 2019 Reply Superman Superman My sensi!✊ December 30, 2019 Reply Sherlock Investigates Japan The bouncing as dropping is a fantastic description, and only something that was actually taught to me once I was learning Taijutsu. I had done seven years of Tae Kwon Do before, now maybe because I was very young, but I had never actually been taught any good strategies for bouncing and never quite understood the how, why, when or where of it. I have actually incorperated this training method for both Taijutsu as unarmed and using weapons as well as when training in Kendo. I set up Two "X's" and with the partners facing each other they move with timing as well as control. EG one is offensive the other defensive in movement. Always facing each other, this way both get a feel for how to bounce defensively and offensively and make best use of the space, time and distance it can create.
