Re: Fugakukai=Kihara=Karl Geis Method?

The method is one of constant movement. We practice for failure, meaning, we do not assume a given technique will work, and practice the chaining so we internalize a second third fourth alternate technique if the first does not work. We also do not use strength to execute a technique. We go from one technique to the next depending on what feedback we get from Uke. If he pushes for instance or strikes a blow, we would execute kotegaeshi. if he were to pull back we would go into udegaeshi and so on. We never tied to force a technique from strength because you then have to plant your feet and become static. This goes against everything in the Method.
