I am currently working on my MACP training to make sure I have that down but I was wondering about how I would be using kosho with it. I can see ( just like any grappling applications) where the main principles of kosho come into play but the main problem I am having is the mindset.

The things I am interested in are:

*How to apply some of the weapon applications of Kosho to the weapons I will be outfitted with (James Williams does a nice job of combining his Nami Ryu with Systema to form His System of Strategy Which Seems to work well).

*How to use the body folding arts to control and arrest instead of hit and fade away.

*Using Kosho Principles as they apply to the grappling techniques in Level one of MACP.

I am sure there are other areas that I will investigate and have questions on but those are the big ones right now. The most important thing is getting my Kosho to work real world... that way after I use it I can come back and spew about how great everyone's advice was:D.
