Your training seems to be a conscience blending of cambat ranges ( a very Chinese outlook, but it could be Ranger pragmatisim) Between Hsing-I, Boxing and Judo. How are the diferent arts blending for you when just working attack and response type training?
Does one come out more than the others, is it just a situational blend-what happens happens, or is it WHAT THE FUCK YOU TALKING "BOUT DARTH?!!
As of right now My MA training is segmented & I have yet to pull everything together. Although I'd have to say I'm probably going to be at a point this fall where I'm going to have to blend all of this together. From stand up striking, the clinch, the knock down/throw, and ground action.
The good thing is that while practicing these ranges seperatly my mind and instincts are making the right connections. While boxing my instincts are kicking in at the correct time for executing elbows, low kicks, knees, head butts, knock downs and throws. This also happens durring judo randori. When practicing hsing-I I can see more applications for techniques or hidden techniques contained in the forms. I'm not saying I'm hell on wheels, but I can at least see the doors are beginning to open for me.
This fall I'm going to have to pull what i have so far together and do some MMA style sparring and training. Not to be a MMA fighter per say, but to use it as a full range sparring experience. After this I'll make a full circle and hopefully work with Steve to to incorporate this into Hsing-I training, sparring, and strategy.
Give me another 9 months and I'll be able to answer your question about how this all will meld together and works.
BTW- I seem to have a very hsing-I approach to Boxing. Every guy that I've sparred with says I have only direction, forward. I hate laying back and reacting. I'd much rather press the action, find a good angle, put them off balance, and attack.
