Re: Multiple attackers, using their idea of what is happening against them

I learn from two different shihan that this is not about evading, but going through the attacker. Which means using the body in different way.
Looking at the result is interesting: After evading the attacker has all possibilities to further attack. After going through him you stand behind him and cut. finito
So what the football video shows is a counterexample to what they want us to do.
