"MY LESSONS WITH THE MASTERS..." Ari Kandel's personal training blog. #33


From a recent private lesson with Al:

Just hit naturally. Your body is already going to the right place, which is what makes everything possible. Don't worry about the limbs. Be completely casual, with no preconceived notions or "artfulness" about it.

Cut the angle and hit with everything available, then when you feel him start to panic, change and cut from the other direction. Then, you start to anticipate his panic and where he will try to go, so you just cut things off in advance. Don't back up or give any space--but be completely light and ghostly as well.

Do everything from the lightest of contact. No pushing! Pushing is Al's teaching game to force you to get loose and explore your movement. In reality and for your own training, just hit--everything is a light but solid tap, even to the body--so that you overcommit to nothing and can always move to the next hit, giving him the feeling that every move he makes is wrong.

In other news, Combat Handgun seminar coming up this Saturday. Should be awesome!
Also, Combat Conditioning DVD coming soon...
