  2. My tae Kwon do instructor growing up had us do flying side kicks over him crouched down in front of the bags. Terrifying and I never saw anyone fall on him

  3. Tbh that’s just some clever bs. People will forget what he talked 10 minutes later. It’s nothing different than all the inspiring quotes you find all over the place. They all sounds super right, but can’t really relate to real life. What does it mean HE is the problem not the stick? What if he’s holding a gun? The gun not a problem?

  4. This is just a complicated way to teach not to flinch. You can learn it naturally by attending a public school between 5th and 7th grade. “Made you flinch!!” is really big there.

  5. It’s funny because this is how operatives are trained. Theatrics (anxiety/panic attacks) are completely welcome though if it can put you in advantageous positions over attackers

  6. Hate to be that dude but this is terrible advice in martial arts. If you don’t backup a bit when someone is threatening you with a weapon, and only try to duck, you are stupid. The weapon already means you are in a dangerous situation. Looking at the weapon is perfectly sound in application.

    It’s fine to apply his teaching, but don’t assume different style of thinking is automatically gospel. I get that you are distracted by a weapon, but you aren’t stupid for looking at the danger and assessing the freakin situation.

    Even in the real World, applying his teaching to social dynamics, it’s freakin obvious WHO the threat is, but there’s a difference between someone who hurting your feeling vs hurting you physically. Assessing the danger is wiser advise.
