I like to start the new year considering something I have not done before. So for this year, take a system that is not local and think:
1. How might I counter their technique.
2. What application potentials can I determine within their technique.
One such system is Ryuei-ryu, a more unusual Okinawan system of karate (IMO).
There is small chance their system is in your area, but a good chance the local schools might be doing some of their unique forms in competition.
So here are several of their signature movements (again IMVHO), to consider how they might be studies.
1. The first one is using their parrying hand to enter an attack.
The second is another sequence from one of their kata.
So stop reading this and get to work!
