At the basic level we use three strikes to simplify our learning.
However, having three strikes does not mean that we are limited in how we can apply them.
From the basic body posture we can also easily shift into the other techniques.
This allows us to easily expand our choice of response as we move up in our learning.
Here I am explaining how we can overcome an attempt to block our strike. We normally explore this as part of learning to understand our techniques.
Traditionally, the teacher will teach us some examples of how to apply the strategies of the art and leave it to us to look into it further.
There is no right or wrong answers, merely investigative questions such as won’t bringing my swinging arm up in the air open me up to a grappler to rush me and body lock me and so on.
