    Thanks, I do remember reading a post of yours regarding the rear heel being up or down, depending on whether you want mobility or stability.
    Thanks for clearing up that timing of the BAM block, BAM and PAM.
    I now have the updated 101 book and I'm sure that after I read the AOD stuff and watch the videos I'll have some more questions.

    Thanks Juan, I didn't know about the timing of the bam-block and the rear foot.

    It's a little tricky....

    LOL

    let me quote Doc here...

    "YA THINK???!" hahahaha

    it looks so simple, but once you realize that everything matters - the level of detail can be staggering at first.

    I think if you practice index set, block set, and stance set the 101 techniques get easier. oh wait time for another "YA THINK??"

    we are practicing some of the SL-3 material at our school, and some students take the "everything matters" dictum to heart and work to perfect every finger bone etc and others are content with a less detailed approach and are happy to just "do the technique". Of course the second group is still wondering 'what's so special about this stuff' LOL

    Couple of more questions.

    What is an "Anchor Point"? I won't write my guess, because it's probably only half correct. Maybe one-third. Possibly one-fifth.

    I'll remember the other question as soon as my brain decides to re-engage...

    draw an anchor across the attacker's face. Targets lie along those lines.


    if I said any more than that it would be "speculation" LOL still too many hows for me to get into the whys of that. Although I have plenty of ideas and information of varying levels of reliability, some very good and some who knows. But I will not try to sort those out in public

    What's the orientation of the anchor?

    directly over the center of the face - with the top 'bar' of the 'anchor' running across the forehead, the stem running straight down across the nose, and the base running up each side of the jaw + cheek.

    So does SL3 emcompass the yellow through green (warrior reference), then brown belt and up is SL4 (mastery reference)?
