It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means — martial arts video time. Since this month’s martial focus is counters, triggers and flow drills, I present for your enjoyment and edification a delightful little flow drill to help you habituate a simple escape from Top Saddle position.
Training techniques in isolation will only get you so far. Flow drills are where it’s at. You have to train the way people move and act in the world. A fight is a dialogue, a call and response, a question and answer, and there is a flow. Also included at the end of the video are a few quick words about this month’s symbol — the Cross — which just so happens to embody the concept of flow.
