Had a woman attend class last night who had zero experience, very nervous but willing to give it a go 👍🏻At the start she was tense and socially awkward in feeling out the levels of intensity and grabbing another person for striking/control. After some step by step coaching and encouragement she started to bring the moves together.
This in itself was the first level of achievement. We discussed real violence and threats with what is necessary psychologically to deliver under stress. Painting this picture and dialling this into what she had learned tripled her ability to literally hammer me with elbows, fold me and lift me off my feet with knees strikes!
Her grip and her drive trough me was as effective as a seasoned #kravmaga
practitioner. She then understood why we do it the way we do it and went on to manage bearhug type attacks with a sound ability to work the angles and utilise whatever strike she had learned in various order.
All this in 90 minutes! She was blasting through and even tactically disengaging with ferocity 💥 100% down to her mindset connecting with her understanding of our training methodology.
This came to mind on the drive home for me....
'Go beyond all of your concepts and perceptions, you will find that only truth remains.' She left full of truths.
