    no two techniques are the same.for example the puter kapala etc doesnt really exist each time it must be created anew and given random circumstances it wont be created the exact way twice.when you enter what is it you are entering into ? .everything

    It's not enough to break the balance,you need to take the balance
    Balance is the center.you steer them like a bicycle.

    Im speaking of structure the concept is always 360 degrees If your structure can cover and occupy more than four directions at one time then you dont need silat.or anything.sure its possible to hit any line from any position but to strike with full power we are limited by structure.

    Only 360?

    only when you're using structure to generate power.

    It would seem that unless you are a chicken or a spider you never know
    what is coming behind you.I say we are responsible for 360 but are lucky to take in more than 180.and when we need to turn we are trading one 180 blind spot for another.360 is imperceptible it is a term of awareness
    for how well the structure is loaded to cover that perpetual blind spot.

    Structure. something made up of interdependent parts in a definite pattern of organization.M.W.Structure is what lets you strike like lightning!

    AHA!
    Now please stop posting 1 liners 4 in a row- if you have something of "Value" to share please do, just don't play Mr. Miyagi with us- we don't need that- it is annoying to say the least.

    Now that's just silly.
    You may never know whats behind you unless you always do.

    But If I pay attention then I know whats behind me. If I don't then I don't.

    It's easer if I remember my glasses. :)

    if you have rear view mirrors on your glasses then I believe you can always see behind you .silat is a multiple opponent art why do you think they are always looking around.why are the juru motions so wide not for one person.no one has their own back.remember that.know that it is your worst weakness.

    okay, say your surounded, they all attack at once, thats silat.you strike in 4 directions because by physical design you only have 4 sides to defend and protect .you intercept on those lines you worry about those lines you maintain defense thru cutting and carving your own lines not theirs.
