    Default another Duh moment in class last night

    Well I had another Duh, moment in class last night. Iím from the country cut me some slack. (Red necks and Kenpo) bad combination. We were working short 2 and well I never really gave much thought to a transitional cat stance. Always been a stance I took for granted and preformed it with out a thought. I know by now youíd think I would have picked up on the usefulness of this move to widen or make narrow your stance. But it was right about the time that my instructor showed me how in the middle of a tech or in sparing you would be able to move out of range of a kick. Since you havenít really moved your body youíd be able to return a strike by just returning to your neutral stance or transitioning into a forward bow.

    Anyway I love those moments when the light comes on.

    Care to share some of your experiences.

    Uh, no. I don't have any moments like that. I operate at peak efficiency at all times.

    You JUST REALIZED THAT? How embarassing...

    I have to admit, I cannot even recall a transitional cat in Short #2.

    The day that you attend a class and a lightbulb does NOT go off for ya, is the day when you need to hang up your gi. LOL

    Have a great week!
    The above is just my opinion.

    Congratulations!
    I love it when that happens. You want to kick yourself for not seeing it before, but that actually motivates me to "look" for more.
