How realistic is: I block your punch and strike you once? The attacker goes down after the one and only strike? :idunno:Brad Dunne said:A question if I may. I'm assuming that the one steps and the 3 steps are self defense training drills. If that is the case, why would a 3 step drill (block/counter, switch - block/counter and switch - block/counter) be more realistic than a one step. Why would you wish to elongate a confrontation by focusing on a 3 pete technique setting?
That's what I'm talking about.doc clean said:Our three steps are actually sparring combos and there is no set partern. My master will have us practice different ones in class, but encourages us to come up with our own.
Our first couple of one steps are block/counter. After that they start to get more complicated.
We break it up into one step (which means the attacker starts one step away from you, not that there is only one step in the movement or counter) and self defense.karatekid1975 said:We do have another set called combat tactics. Those are more realistic than the one steps. We defend against punches, kicks, chokes, grabs, ect. Higher ranks do them at full speed, and just short of hurting each other (eventhough it can hurt at times LOL). This set has counters with elbows, knees, locks, throws, ect. I like these a lot :uhyeah:
Yeah, it took me a while to figure out that one-step might mean different things for different people.doc clean said:Thanks. That defination makes more sense then what I assumed one step meant.
