    Default So the darndest thing happened last week...

    So in class last week we were working on a simple spontaniety (spelling sucks) drill. The opponent throws a random attack, we respond with a block and counter attack.

    Well for anyone who's learned the basics of centerline set, the attacks started coming at me with basic right/left combos, and like centerline set I come back with the appropriate block/counter response. All the sudden, I'm launching in with the 6 count timing drill. I didn't know what happened at first, so I had him try that combo again, and the same thing happened!

    I think I just had a new understanding on what i'm doing.

    Muscle memory is a beautiful thing.

    Once you get it all into muscle memory, you just start to move.

    I find the trouble starts when I 'think' about it.

    I did that on my test. There I was, poised to do the extension for hugging pendulum, then I had a thought. I started to think. So, naturally, I stopped my flow of motion, then went into a completely wrong extension.

    Brilliant.

    The go with the flow is the best way I know!

    I agree. I still have that "thinking" habit that I'm trying to break!
