5 Elements of the Close

Apply these elements each time you square off with your training partner. A very important part of learning to defend yourself is to visualize the attack or to treat every training attack as a real attack. Then, follow these elements in order.

1) Read Motion – Pre-Assauilt Cue
2) Startle – Explode Energy Forward
3) Enter – Close at the Attacker
4) Shut Down – Touch, Limit Motion
5) Finish – Attacker to the Ground
