speed of a object
« on: May 06, 2009, 04:59:35 AM »

While reviewing Hocks combat centric page I came accross a article discribing speed of a object-good information-basically it talked about a object comming straight at you  is harder to judge speed than if comming from side to side-
So my question is=is it a good idea to train while being at a angle to a opponent than face to  face?

In the chaos of combat, I don't think you can predict where you will be.

I am always flustered when I hear a Chinese guy obsess about center-line, or a Filipino guy obsess about always "being on the outside." And further be mislead into thinking they will "ALWAYS" be fighting from these positions.

I think people should train with thrusts and hooks for tools for all sides.

In a perfect world you'll fight everyone with their back turned to you!
Everything else is less than perfect.
