Good stuff , I`m very much in favour of a cover and explode methodology , and it`s probably shotokan influenced so rain down the proverbial ....
It definitely rely ons stop hits and attacking the attack , If I have to fight I attack , My attack will cover one side and the guard the other , compound this and you get clashes or clean hits .
clashes work to jamming and trapping and those blocks with forward pressure ( cool eh Jim
) , and if that doesnt work it`ll lead to clinching , maybe throwing , and maybe well both fall over and ground comes into play .......
All the time I`m still attacking , meaning any respite by my opponent is an opening and he plays cacth up .
that and seizing anatomical vulnerable areas , gouging etc , means I can often get a predetermined response , and then take control of the ooda loop .
Even my ground game is aggressive , Despite the thoughts on pinning and positional strategy my objective is to cause the opponent to react , either enabling me to get to my feet or create an opening and forcing a submission .
