    Lightbulb Question

    I have a question from the Akki Encyclopedia. Does overloading the Senses Mean trying to learn to much before the student has had time to season? Any input would be welcome. Thanks

    Good question, I thought it had to do with overloading your opponent, to much for their senses to handle, be it through consecutive strikes, deceptive motion and attacks, pain, psychology etc...

    It will be intersting to hear the answer!

    Overloading the senses is as Jason pointed out. Completely overwhelming of the attacker in everyway so that they don't have the ability to know which way is up or remember their own name while you maintain a position of dominance, obliterate their base and give them way more abrupt and damaging pain than they know what to do with.

    Nobody, no teacher or senior student, would ever want to move you along faster than you can 'season'. Thing is, the 'seasoning' is where it's at!!! If you feel that you are moving along faster than you can "season"....then politely bring the issue up to your instructor. The fact that you care will show him that you are just wanting to be and do the best that you can as a Kenpoist. I wish MORE Kenpo students cared more about their seasoning than getting that next belt, that next technique....that next................whatever.

    I'd rather be able to do the Yellow - Purple stuff with EXCELLENCE, than to have the Yellow through Black material and do it half-baked.
