Moving behind opponent and timing of escapes (Demo) - Dec 23, 2014

The ability to move around (or circle) your opponent is very useful in combat. In contrast with simple backward and forward movement, it automatically takes the defender off the line of attack while giving more options as to the direction of the escape (can go left or right).

At a longer range, this involves cross stepping and turning; I will leave this discussion for a later post.

At a short and medium distance, one can effectively circle the opponent by first moving behind him and then back using a simple stepping technique so that making a full circle requires two steps. The method works equally well when the attacker is coming into a striking range from a distance or when working against multiple opponents to hide behind one of them. Another application of this method is perfect for avoiding strikes when moving around an opponent at a very close range where you almost brush against opponent's body.

Another aspect of movement is timing. It is best achieved by "synchronizing" your movement with the attacker. Simply put, the escapee can mentally connect the opponent's leg or arm making a move and move his let to step back concurrently and at the same pace. Doing so continuously makes for very smooth and safe movement just outside of attacker's range.

Here is a short demo of both points above.

Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
