The other night in class we practiced a game called Advantage. A sort of sparring plus. The idea is to not only score points but to sweep out or lock out the opponent – gain the advantage.
As we were sparring I realized that I was just thinking in terms of individual strikes and kicks. Light as particles.
In order to move into position to gain the advantage, I would have to move smoothly, hooking into my opponents energy to fill in the gaps. Light as a wave.
