Combo is to set up a trap to let your opponent to fall into it. When you use downward parry to grab your opponent's arm, in order to escape your grabbing, your opponent's arm will rotate the same way as your arm. If you reverse your arm's rotation, you can meet his arm half way.


this idea definitely makes me miss the fun of trying these things.

IMO it makes no sense to talk about IMA without meditation, prayer, intent, qi, mind-spirit-soul, jing, stuff that's bigger and beyond the mere physical body. If you reduce it to the physical you'll never get it. That's wishful thinking. Again, IMO; everyone prefers their brew differently.


I'd love to hear more about what you have to say about that. Particularly shen->xin->yi->qi->jin


Sure.

Shen is the divine aspect of a human. Some call it the 'big' you vs. the 'small' you that is your energetic heart centre (or middle dantien) where your sense of ego / your sense of identification resides in....


I thank you for a comprehensive description of shen. Now where is part 2? :D

I suppose I should say what I'm specifically most interested in is the process by which an impulse becomes an action. You've described shen, the wellspring of impulse, what can you say about the components that process that impulse into jin, action?

Speaking directly to the point of the thread, I believe there is a certain risk in drilling combos. You see it in fights all the time. The combo begins, the opponent changes, the combo continues because it's been so deeply ingrained in muscle memory. It's a one touch process that has to complete. A set of synapses trained to fire together. Perceptive opponents pick up on those patterns. The best ones read it in real time true first time and respond immediately to changing conditions. If you rely on combos they need to have fail-safes built in.

Well you fake L to go R

But sometimes you go L

This is true in more or less all sports except the pure clock ones or judged ones.

I like some of Fedor’s old combos:

- he punches
- you’d better react otherwise lights out
- you try to stick your arm there
- he knocks it down and throws you
- you pull guard
- he GNPs you then submits you

More or less not defensible of a combo
—— until he got old

The impulse becomes action via electrical activity.

There is a state of “sub threshold excitation”.

You could say yiquan’s idea of shi li is about this: about to move but not moving.

But obviously a lot of athletes like goalies or tennis players returning 100 mph serves have to master it to a greater level.

The OP combo begins, the opponent doesn't overcommit or block your jab. However, you "drop your leading arm to block your opponent's jab (overcommit)." The opponent punches your face. The OP combo fails.

Instead, Fury uses the same timing I explained with clips in this previous thread, when the subject "initial stage" came up. Fury controls Wilder's center, double weights him and traps with pulling hand and punch (Lop Sao Da) to Wilder's face.

Fury's combo:

1. Fury takes casual, small side steps to the left creating a superior position, which leads Wilder to follow.
2. Fury takes a quick, large shuffle step forward, timing Wilder's double weight while eliminating trading punches.
3. Fury traps Wilder's right rear hand and punches Wilder's face (Lop Sao Da) before Wilder can transfer his weight to the front foot.

Note that, instead of trapping/punch, Fury could have issued head control, front cut/osoto gari, irimi nage, etc., with the same timing under different rules:

Image

Rokas fails to grab Jesse, because Jesse is able to yield by pushing off his front foot. Using Fury's timing (double weight) and quick shuffle steps, Rokas has a better chance of clinching, head control, etc:

Image

Here Fury attempts to issue (steps) when Wilder's front foot is already planted ("end stage") missing the timing of Wilder's double weight, while Wilder knocks down Fury:

Competition fighters, especially among top ranked Boxing and MMA competitors, most often have an opportunity to view videos of their upcoming opponent's previous bouts, which enables them to analyze the opponent's fighting style and typical movement strategy, their preferred techniques and combos, their potential weaknesses or vulnerabilities, and so forth, in preparing a fight plan and strategy for facing each opponent.

This is a luxury which doesn't exist when facing an unexpected realtime self-defense scenario against an unknown adversary on the street or in a tavern. In these instances, we have to be prepared to effectively apply what we train against whatever style, techniques, or combinations we may encounter from opponents of any size or skill level. This type of preparation and capability is considerably more difficult, imo. :-\

Yes. However, understanding, listening and controlling an opponent's center (e.g., weight shifts) can be trained.

An unknown opponent will shift their weight (steps) regardless of the venue (e.g., street or ring). It's up to the MAist to recognize, train and develop these skills of timing, distance control, etc.

Of course. We all know that to be true. I never stated or implied otherwise. ::)

I don't know that, because the subject of "initial stage" was brought up and discussed. In this thread and previous one, the student lands his front foot. After that, a six move combo starts:

to respond to my opponent's jab and cross with speed. I feel I was still in my 30. ;D
