In this video we show a series of partner drills for better understanding of whole natural movement and seeing what you can do when you “develop the situation” as the phrase goes. Anything you do will teach you something if you let it.
I will present a few ideas to address this question. First the obscure part. You can skip straight to the movement drills and come back later for this: Mentally we place a divider between making contact and hitting.

The second walks about and works both to be relaxed and not show his intentions and to come in and take down either other student when his attention… Read More Learning to accept contact and maintain vigilance
Have a partner come at you with a fist toward your face. Hold your breath and tense up your body. As the contact comes exhale and relax your entire body to the ground. Repeat this drill from all directions forward backside and sides and from different angles. Change roles and repeat and then add adding… Read More Using tension and breath to increase awareness.
In this video we learn to first recognize and secondly make intelligent and conscious use of the patterns of tension which dynamically make up our posture reactions and using this also actions.
