    Default Two Man Set

    Here's a clip of Donna & me doing 2-man a few years ago. This was historic for 2 reasons: (1) donna's 2nd degree certification, and (2) the first time husband and wife did the set without killing each other~ enjoy!

    Excellent. How much discussion about it did you have aftewards?

    Two-man set is on our list for things to get going. I sort of know it, but we only did it about every six months. Tara doesn't know it yet, but she will soon. It's a really fun set.

    Thanks for posting it!

    There are things that are worth knowing for their own sake, worth finding for the pure joy of discovery.

    Thanks Amy, actually there wasn't much discussion about it afterward, I was just happy it was over and well received. We spent a lot of time learning and working on this set to get it to move well. We had a lot of laughs and our share of disagreements about applications (we referred a lot to the "secrets" book for minute details). I'm sure you and Tara will do a great job with it.

    Peace,

    Donna

    Hey Jamie,

    Thanks for your comments on the vid. both here and on you tube. The secret to our fluidity and balance comes from twenty years of marriage! Everytime we finish this set we ask - "was it good for you?" Hmmmmmm....

    Peace,

    Donna

    Great job! Did it help being husband and wife and "knowing each other" better than most?

    Thank you James for your comments here and on You Tube, I think I remember seeing you there and I definitely remember Aaron. I did about 10 self defense techs in addition to this set for the certification.

    Hey there Crippler, I would say it was a definite plus to be able to practice early morning or late into the evening in our jammies! Thanks!

    The set looked good. It's always interesting to see how it's going to go when it's competition time and people are watching!
    Be careful what you say, some may take it the wrong way.
