Tips from 2010 #21
TODAY'S TIP: Remember, hitting someone is easy. If a guy were to politely stand still in front of you, you could lay into him pretty well with only minimal training. The problem arises when the guy MOVES and tries to hurt YOU. In this case (i.e. reality), you need to learn how to MOVE WITH him, to adapt to his movement to constantly put yourself in position to hit effectively without being hit. If you get this down well, effective hitting goes back to being easy again. If you can move with the guy very well, he might as well be standing still with regard to your ability to damage him. Therefore, in your contact flow, concentrate on improving your ability to move with people such that you can remain in position to hit without being hit. That will make hitting easy. Too many people in contact flow just try to hit without moving the whole body with what he's doing. This renders hitting difficult, no matter how much you try it! You want to always be moving your whole body to where you are UNAVAILABLE yet UNAVOIDABLE! If during contact flow you get the feeling that his movement is frustrating your ability to hit him, your mindset is wrong. You are not moving with him, but trying to force your hits instead. When you are moving with him, his movement CREATES and FACILITATES your hits!
