Internal arts controlling concepts
I use several concepts in this video to defect my partners Posture. Shaving is where the finger slides into a notch in the joint and manipulate the facia to pull your partner from a distal point in their body that is difficult to neutralize. When my opponent releases their intention to attack me and i divert them off line , they will resist on a subconscious level that can cause them to stick to you via their resistance. When these two concepts are combined it is easy to cause your opponent to lose their footing as you are reaching down through their body and pinning their feet to the floor. This makes it difficult for them to react leaving me an opportunity to counterattack. This also leaves their body in disarray so that they cannot easily counterattack. The idea is that instead of responding to a quantity of attacks, instead bridge the attack and control the body from the point of contact. When an opponent’s feet are pinned into the ground via contact point , this tends to create resistance and anxiety that can be taken advantage of by a skilled practitioner. The manipulation can also cause the opponent to run headfirst into the counterattack multiplying your power.
