What George said about deflection jives with what I got from the Iwama people that I've trained with though their hasso is a real room clearing motion. the advantage of Hasso No Gaishi it that it leaves you in Hasso with is a very good offencive position to strike men with little preperation. As for pairs vs solos work I whole heartedly agree. Having another person there eliminates the ability to "fake" it even if you are serious in your solo work you don't "know" that it will work until you find out it doesn't always. besides it's tough to maintain good posture solo paired you have to just to see ou partner.

That's what makes my Thumper go
