you need forms before you can pour the foundation
jurus instill a complete controlled awareness of all one's own motion.thru limiting your motions to forms you are also sectoring all motions out side the form you are allways drawing from the unlimited boundaries you create
any time from any range at any pressure when the leg connects there's a sapu or biset opportunity.its geometric leg destruction
The jurus only work, if you forget they are there .Every intent is a dangerous leap of faith.
One must remain neutral to read the opponent
Plus opportunities such as Sapu, beset & puter kepala present themselves. If you "chase" it, it doesn't work.
their first mistake is your first oppotunity.
beggar is the winner, chooser is the loser.
jurus are the heart derivative motions, from their vast applications,
Wow. That must be a very common experience for folks coming into Silat. It sure mirrors mine.
(not the SE Asia bit, but the general impression...)
every strike is seen as a set up, every deflection to damage, stagger and shock.
In the training the attacker can can do anything full force with intent to do maximum damage .The one being attacked never intentionally inflicts
injury in their response take down.
first, you train your body with jurus, then thru time and guidance you learn to unlock the meanings in application.
The reason for this precise repetition is to rise above it. what you first embrace you need to eventually despise
every art is different, every style is different, every teacher is different every student is different.every understanding is different.every attack is one of a kind.
train the impossible,to prepare for the unpredictable
even the most realistic empty hand against blade training will only grant one a slight edge, depending on the intent and skill of the knife fighter.
difference between real and realistic is same as between real and non real
there are no knife counters for some one who doesnt show thier knife.
OK IB, I can understand your wanting to convey your insights, but do they have to be in fortune cookie installments?
Yes. Any one who think's they are prepared to dis arm a knife fighter
has false confidence.123
