Thanks to Tom, Tony, and Sabrina for shredding through technique to get to purpose.
- The devil is in the details – so keep things ASAP (as simple as possible) to get it over ASAP.
- Training specific ranges (corto/close, medio/medium, largo/long) is only for TRAINING! Reality means changing ranges to get the job done.
- Sticks should be ‘punched’ out instead of ‘swung out’ to keep your hand inside the ‘body rectangle.’
- Blocks are strikes and strikes are blocks.
Habits are hard to break and training habits don’t always translate to good application. Training drills are essential to get better at specific skills, but should not be confused with application drills. Tom, Tony, and Sabrina did a great job of changing gears when we switched between training for skill development and when we were training for application.
