Hey !! Geezer !! How are you??
In the Modern Arnis I teach, the upper cut and back hand is Figure 8 empty hand.
The one you reference is part of our Flow or follow thru striking and is 1 & 2 (forehand & backhand) and we call this the reverse figure 8.
Might be counter intuitive, yet the #1 &...
Yes Bank and credit cards companies have a credit score and also some tracking. Which is great.
This allows one to go see al three reports and find out if there is any old data or incorrect data.
Also if someone created an account one was not aware of. :eek:
Just did a check up at all three credit reporting agencies.
I had to do each one at a time.
I was able to save off in PDF.
A couple seemed harder to navigate than the other.
Just a check up.

One of my LEO friends said, "Rich, if I showed up to your place, I would ask you to submit calmly. If you did cool. If not I would back up and say 'Take the Shot'"
And I am by no means a perfect specimen .
My School broke, lots of hurt feelings. Lots of weird comments and accusations made.
Oher than People in general - Why ?
Yes, I agree there is not enough information to answer the specific question.
Many year ago I was a t a friends wedding (to happen in their backyard in Texas). The Groom needed a little distraction , and we started talking about swords and styles.
We went to his study and he handed me a sabre and he took a rapier. We discussed the subtleties and similarities between FMA...
The MMA has a good use of energy and also test their skills
BJJ - a base for the MMA is also a god art to check out.
FMA - with the right class / instructor, can get you the action and have weapons not be extra - and are taught along with the empty hand.
If no weapon is what you meant then...
IRL with someone who wanted to hurt me with the big kitchen knife, I was able to power stop.
I checked their incoming hand and gripped their wrist and kept squeezing until they screamed and I kept telling them I would not let go until they let go of the knife.
When they did I kept a hold of...
Not trying to be difficult just breaking apart for discussion and to keep your complete post, and not take something out of context.
1) I am relatively healthy at the time
2) I am not taken out with sniper precision from a distance, and or in close combat.
From Past Experiences...
I use the following:
1) Center Lock
2) Reverse Hand / Backwards Throw
3) Not sure as you stated angle is off and will take your Figure 4
4) Side by Side (Throw)
5) Compress Elbow
6) Wrist Lock
7) Armbar (under Arm) - As you can get to an armbar from lots of places
8) Standing Center Lock
I agree, the only thing I dislike more than the drama is the paperwork.
I stay away, and have turned down all passes. That is me though.
I have seen others be very selective and have life long (so far) partners.
I guess I never had such a connection or attraction to give it try.
I drove an hour plus for one of my FMA arts.
I know others would not drive it. So they did not go. Then they got upset when I got better, even if they started before me.
People will do what they want.
Yet, most are not looking for a passion. They are looking for exercise, or to "Feel" safe...
I have only trained in two arts, both of them FMA.
The First is a generalist. Starts with Stick and empty hand, with some basic blade self defense to get people moving.
Works multiple ranges and multiple weapons. While many after a period of time can see that some of the techniques may be...
