For example: during a lesson the other day, I told one of my students that a good fighting stance (from a combat sport perspective), should let the combat athlete do three things.
- Move, in multiple directions as the situation warrants.
- Brace, if the fighter needs to maintain position.
- Generate power, because hitting people hard is kind of the name of the game (at least, the game we play at Sityodtong).
But, as I said, I like it. I'm not sure it's a)right, or b)complete, but I think there's a germ of something useful there.
What do you all think?
[Note: I am specifically talking about a stance for combat sport in this one. "Stance" in self-defense is a whole different concept/issue/whatever.]
