    To the groin or bladder, yes, and following up with a step inward or into the opponent thigh. Is great when the legs are making a bridge to breakdown the opponent's leg structure by thrusting forward.
    Great question.

    Thanks. Just seemed quite natural to me. The knee being extremely powerful, but underused it seems to me. The bridge, sorry for being a bit thick here, but that would be the passage of travel from the first shape to the actual impact on the opponent?

    The bridge is contact. Whether it be the arm, leg, shoulder, hip...etc. Opponent punches, you intercept the motion with your arm sticking; that is the bridge. You step in and makes contact with the opponent's leg and stick, that is the bridge.
    Hope that helps.

    Yes divine sage it does. Yes makes a lot of sense and many thanks to you! Now I understand the bridge, and yes that is very tactile. Many count action as a continuous follow through, by breaking rhythm you allow a new one. Rather than intercept and finish quickly, block then chop kind of thing. Pace, power and precision. Is that plausible do you think?

    Can be a continuous action; intercept and attack in one action. Can be a two or three beat action. It will always depend upon the situation. At the highest level if all is right then one movement, one action, fight over. But must always be prepared for what if it doesn't happen.

    Yeah, I hear you. As a ex doorman, some things just translate as street language. It is difficult to convey, but a lot of the preparation becomes a natural state after a while. I actually would think in the reverse of a aggressive potential. IE I look for the defence first, mine and theirs. Yeah on the former, maybe not three up top, one would have to be a kick.
