“He who can handle the quickest rate of change survives.” Lt. Colonel John Boyd
The Saturday morning senior class really smacked it out of the park this week, frequently I will let the camera run through the session hoping that we will get something good, usually, it is a struggle, the pace of teaching/training is very different than the pace of presenting.
But not this week.
We were hoping to hit three topics with the same session,
- understanding the O.O.D.A. Loop.
- Creating distractions to facilitate the O.O.D.A. Loop.
- Reverse engineering a few of our favourite moves to see where we think they come from, Forms, Chi Sau, Drills that type of stuff.
It was the third aspect that got everyone ticking, so much that I have about 90 minutes of video footage to work through.
This is just a taste, it may look a bit weird if you are not at the level of Sam, Costas and George, who are all junior master level practitioners, but the skill here is top-notch and they are trying hard not to hurt each other.
TRAIN WHAT? WORK WHAT?
