The students explore the unarmed fight at five distances. To learn to handle a self-defense situation, we first start from a zero distance – without contact. Afterwards the kicking distance – only kicks are possible. After that the punching distance – possibility to beat, grappling – clasps and throws, finally down to groundfight – both partners are on the ground. The techniques and strategies are considered separately first, later, in the practice situation, we bridge the distances to bring down the attacker.
More and more there is a transfer from form training to unarmed fight. After that the hand form is being revised and updated on the basis of application and experience.
