    NOTES ON COORDINATION SET 1


    1. When stepping forward (as well as when covering), be sure to
    utilize the DOUBLE FACTOR in your blocks.

    2. Work segments of this set on a partner to study how you can
    simultaneously attack Height, Width, and Depth Zones.

    3. The set teaches you how to properly use torque when punching. Be
    sure to always use the Counter Torque of the hand that is cocking to
    the rear.

    4. Practice the set in an environment that requires you to "switch"
    rather than stepping forward. When switching in this set, have your
    rear foot move to the front and then the front foot move to the rear.

    5. Be conscious of your head level during the set.

    6. Remember that this is a set for developing coordination. The key
    ingredient for developing coordination is "repetition".

    7. Study the use of Reverse Motion throughout the Set.

    8. Experiment with thrusting your kicks vs snapping them.

    9. This Set is an excellent opportunity to discover how to properly
    execute a punch when pivoting from a neutral bow to a forward bow.

    10. The action in this set may be compared to that of a whip.
    Investigate how a whip derives its power.
