Game of Bridges

Blast from the past on how to play the bridging game.

Why do we learn how to play hands instead of charging in to push, pummel and throw?

Playing hands is like playing chess. It gives you a chance to get to know the other person and work on your reflexes. It also protects you from getting punched in the face if you just charge right in, especially against people you touch hands with for the first time and they are from styles that like to aim at the head.

When playing hands though you can flow and flow you have to constantly remind yourself that each time you get a position that position is like a hub that allows for different options such as striking, locking, throwing or even grappling. The possibilities are up to you to decide.
