I like the progression of techniques shown in that piece of martial literature from reactive to essentially attacking the attack. It makes me ponder whether there can be a yakusoku kumite that works through that progression.
I've found that when you try to do partner exercises with the attack-the-attack mindset, the attacker becomes more and more tentative with each sequence. Pretty soon you have nothing to work with. When trying to demonstrate how many of these techniques work, my students just shut down on me. (Maybe it's my chi!!
) In any case, it's a reason why we don't see much in the way of these techniques practiced - in spite of the purists arguing that we must evolve to that.
Gary Khoury once asked some of the Okinawan masters why our yakusoku kumite didn't have much in the way of preemptive attacks. The response? "Those kumite would be too short!"
