First ---Please go over my post on "Hair Trigger". Most of that post has a lot to do with this topic. The general point here is to be able to fire fast - hard - strikes from any position you happen to be in. You will be able to do this once you have established your power base. If that power base is not set, you will just be waving your arm weakly. The real world - outside the dojo- will not allow you to get into a "Fighting Stance". We all know that. SO!!! we must react from where we are. That first sudden reaction by you must be explosive. Do you want to get into a fight, or simply take him out and get out of there? I think I know your answer. Your hands must speak fast and hard, with leg thrusts also talking. OK - this is a section of your class that will help you with this. Practice striking the bag from all positions. Standing still, moving around the bag, backing into the bag, bag on all four sides of your body, etc. All your strikes have one common denominator. They all fire from the power base. The hands pass through this base on their way to the target. The leg thrusts as well. I really like hitting with my hands at my side. I feel I'm picking up extra power as my hands come up and go through the sanchin power base. When you realize that you are always in a fighting stance, your Hair Trigger has been set. You are able to explode from any position you are in. Once again ---check the web site on striking and leg thrusts for reference. --------Happy Trails -----Art
