Even in striking there are levels to use.
To capitalize on the body's reaction to the strike. The strike may move the person into a better position, ie:to pop the chin up so you can apply leverage across the throat etc.If it`s not appropriate to hit full force I dont at this point see why i would hit at all
I really agree with you on this. I focused on CDT for about a good year along with the smash and bash karate I was doing. One day the light bulb went off and I realized that I was trying to develope two skill sets. I started looking for techniques that would work in either situation or were flexible enough to be soft or hard with a small change so that things were more blended. That's one of the criterea I use for what I keep as base techniques and what I keep for special occaisions.My stalls , My favourite is a foot sweep , just to distract the mind , and this is from point fighting , latch on and go from there , but i`ll do it in either scenario .
