    Default MT: well i'll be darned

    well i'll be darned
    By bushidomartialarts - Thu, 11 Jan 2007 19:41:07 GMT


    question brought up in class last night:

    deflecting hammer has us step back with the left foot and block away from our center in response to a front kick.

    thrusting salute has us step back with the right foot and block across our center in response to a front kick.

    the student found these contradictory.

    i found myself embarassed that, after 13 years, i had never noticed that little wrinkle.

    Yea but they teach you different things. I am going to just state the obvious.

    1. In Thrusting salute you are working on the inside of the body while Deflecting hammer has you working on the outside.
