Listen and Follow
Alex attempts to pluck me and I follow him and neutralize by relaxing and opening my posture . This action stopped his plucking action and causes him to reverse direction and push back towards my ward off. I follow him rolling him off of my center and causing him to fall into emptiness. Alex corrects his forward momentum and attempts to come back to central equilibrium which I follow as well uprooting him and sending him out. This is possible by first listening to what direction your partner wants to move. You have to follow that direction and “add 4 ounces to topple 1000 pounds”. Essentially if you can cause your partner to lose their center either by missing your center or by receiving their force you can follow their corrective action and corrupt their calculation of equilibrium by adding a small following force there by using their own forced to uproot them.
