Combinations and sequences

Post by Roger N » Tue Apr 20, 2010 12:25 pm

Based on a few things we have been experimenting with lately, I am curious as to what sequences, combos and "follow up" techniques people have put together.

For instance, when you bind inbetween the hands from below, you can strike forward from the bind with one end, and if that misses, bind on the outside, do an "umbschnappen"-motion and strike with the other end.

Likewise, in an upper hengen bind you can do eusern nym, but also strike around with a schnappen, using the backend.

I'll see if we can put together a few clips of this quickly. I'll be doing knee surgery in about a week from now, so I'll be gone from practice for the next few months.

Thanks! I snapped my front cruxiate tendon last October, and the inside tendon and the back cruxiate tendon and the meniscus are also damaged, so it'll be a fairly complex operation, where they use part of the sinew on the inside of the knee to replace the snapped tendon. Sucks, but the knee will hopefully be more stable afterwards. As it is, it bends in all four directions, if I am not careful...

Anyhow, I would love to hear about any combos that you have found to be effective or natural. :)

Good luck with the surgery Roger. Hope it all goes perfectly and you are recovered and back in practice soon!

Cheers,

Bill
