Re: Woman's Knife vs. Multiple Attack

Ron,

Thank you.

There are various methods we employ in using the hand work: external/male, perscussive/in-between and internal/female.

The circle is employed in a way where the striking is repetitious given the circular pathway. When adding the circular footwork, centrifical force and gravitational pull multiply the force of the hand strikes. Rather then using muscle we are using positioning and simple mechanics.

Thank you again for your comments. I choose this tape because I thought it came close to what aikido practitioners do when defending against multiple opponents.

Sincerely
Joseph T. Oliva Arriola
