We can create an opening to attack or we can wait until an opening presents itself.
In the clip below my student presented a good flow with strong, sticky movements so unless I purposely created an opening there was no getting through his defence.
But as we flowed and flowed, a slight deviation in his movement flow was detected and I seized the opportunity to attack. This is why when we play hands we put 110% awareness into it.
The clip below presents a different take on how to attack. This time instead of letting the flow of movements open up the space to attack, I used pressure to crowd in, wedge and attack.
Thereafter, I used the same attack over and over again. I didn’t need to change the technique because my student could not solve the technique.
