    Default MT: Stances in sparring

    Stances in sparring
    By KempoGuy06 - Thu, 19 Jul 2007 19:35:36 GMT

    ====================

    Ive been at SKK for over a year now (cant believe its been that long already) and Ive noticed different stances in my material. How can these stances be used in sparring, if they can? What is the benifit of using different stances?

    B

    I just realized that this might be better off in the general MA forum, i dont know though. If it needs to be moved could a MOD take care of that for me. Thanks

    Of course you can you probably do them but your always moving from one to stance to another. How many times have you seen someone step into a neutral bow and jam there opponent's front arm and then pivot into a wide kneel and hit his opponent with a underhand punch to the body then cock it back and hit him again with a over hand punch to the head ending in a close kneel. I generally start from a neutral stance with feet about shoulders with apart allowing me to drop forward or back, step off angle into which ever stance as needed. If you practice your stances in forms and in your techniques then you they also should be apart of your sparring.

    Depends on your definition of stance and on your definition of sparring.

    Those who wait use one type of tactic.

    Those who attack use totally different methods.

    If you are skilled, both methods work.

    One method is based upon defense of a fortress.

    The other is based upon being fast, unseen, and leaving before they can retaliate.

    And a Neutral Bow will NOT work for proper effective attacks.

    NOT sucking up?

    Why not?

    Ps. I did develop "accelerator stances" back in the 70's just for sparring.
    Then we went to tournaments and had lots of fun. They are on my "old" videos and some here have trained with them.
