Just excellent Van, merging joint mass centre, entering unopposed, psychology, pattern interrupt, and some books to read.

When he described letting them enter you, and giving them a point of attention I had to smile, we've got it easier In martial arts as the opponents always trying to achieve something

I agree Stryke...much to learn just by reading and understanding this guy.

I don't think too many get it.

I agree Van , but this stuff while on the surface is a bit esoteric when youve stuck around long enough and dig you can see the principles

its all relationship , his description on movement and merging read as if i was describing entering on force , the mental stuff golden .

while we need the base of combatives , power and cqb skill , that stuff is finite but crucial , this stuff is were we probably need to end up especially as we age and physical becomes more difficult , combine tactics awareness , phsychology , and a good dose of relativity (physically and mentally)

good principles transcend even purpose there the nature of interaction .

Interesting area of study Van, we haven't even got to learning how a pickpocket chooses his mark

Indeed, Marcus. Also what do we project...how...and why...

...that seems to trigger rudeness and outright physical attack by some people?

We have had some such cases involving Uechi people.
