    Default Problem Techniques

    Just wondering if anyone is having any problem executing specific techniques on a training partner? If so, which ones and why?

    Let me see if I can help.

    I do think "Marriage of the Rams" has always been a bit ridiculous though.

    Yep.....I guess you take some of the motion from obscure claws on both sides and the initial strike makes sense. I can see the value in both in bits and pieces as a "lesson" but not so much a stand alone technique. What environmental considerations would you say are different for marriage of the rams and snakes of wisdom? Or is it simply the nature of the attack that changes? I was under the impression that it was in gauging the distance at both men on your flanks determined the techniques.

    in snakes, they've got you at the shoulders and the other hand on your tricep area (shirt sleeve), allowing you to circle your arms front to rear.

    in marriage of the rams, they've got you at the shoulders and also at the wrists. this would prevent the motion of snakes, but not restrict its reverse motion, into the groin or inguinal crease area.

    hey jamie... i didn't realize this was your forum... congratulations.

    i've got a question, followup on this same thought... if you use what i previously posted on snakes of wisdom vs marriage of the rams, then what becomes of courting the tiger?

    didn't think much of it until now... i've practiced tiger with the same general attack as rams, but since you would have to step back into a twist does this imply that the 'escorts' have stopped moving you forward and you have the opportunity to change direction?

    as opposed to marriage of the rams (and snakes of wisdom) where everybody keeps going forward....

    Well, I don't teach Snakes of Wisdom for someone pulling me forward, but rather back, hence the angle of least resistance as we step back and execute the double claws to the opponents’ faces that will control their height, width, and depth.


    These techniques are easier to discuss over the phone.....I know, I know, I still have to call you sometime. Since you have unlimited long distance, maybe you could give me a call sometime between 9 and 9:30pm.

    Happy New Year bro.
