In this episode (recorded pre lockdown) Sue and Greg talk about the now cancelled fight between Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov, pre emptive striking, the fence and more!
Hope everyone is doing well during this tough time and is most importantly keeping themselves safe.
Gichin Funakoshi quote on Pre Emptive striking from Karate-Do Kyohan:
“When there are no avenues of escape or one is caught even before any attempt to escape can be made, then for the first time the use of self-defense techniques should be considered.
Even at times like these, do not show any intention of attacking, but first let the attacker become careless. At that time attack him concentrating one’s whole strength in one blow to a vital point and in the moment of surprise, escape and seek shelter and help.”
