  1. 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…😎

  2. Yes, it is a boat bumper. No idea as to its specific size, and I’m thinking that variations in size will not matter much for the purpose at hand.

    What does matter is that

    a) it is likely to degrade much slower than canvass of a heavy bag from the stick strikes; and

    b) the stick flows more smoothly upon contact. Contrast canvass where the stick tends to come to a stop.

  3. The original power striking video, the Bolo Game, and this KK series formed the basis of my style. I certainly gained a lot and enjoy all the other lessons, but I really found myself with these three. Forever grateful.

  4. Always a great feeling to step through a portal into territory previously unknown to us!

    Also to appreciate here is the potential for extremely long range strikes. When stepping through with the same foot raise the knee as high as you can and you will be able to achieve tremendous distance covering glide.

    This can serve to an opponent at bay– a valuable option to have when we are gassed!– and enable us to bully our opponent backwards. In a closed environment (as vs. an open field) this can serve to back him up into something (a cage, a fence, a car, a wall, etc) which blocks his further retreat at which point we can sit out of his range and drop bombs on him.

    Also very much to keep in mind here is to install the Frondo! Combined with the glide achieved with our high knee, the Frondo will enable us to throw a wicked teep when he roofs our strike.
