Walk As A Warrior For All Your Days
In the past I rarely started off with an off lead unless using it as a setup. This structure opens up some new possibilities.
The Off-Lead is tremendous. When fighting single stick back in the day, we all circled in one direction, favoring Strong Side Forward.
Now we can chase our tails going in the other direction.
This was a huge game changer for me as I could now cut in and cut out on a greater variety of angles.
Prior, I though I must have double sticks to feel safe circling in the other direction.
The single stick off lead structure works very well when your opponent has double sticks.
And the range gained when simultaneously stepping through with a block which converts to a strike…😎
