.......interesting things about fitness, strength, diet and performance.
Hey Chris,Peter Consterdine is something ofa legend in SD. The technique he's using here is simly one of body mechanics. The best way to explore this is with a heavy bay. At close quarters the whipping motion of the hips allows you to hit with more force. hope that helps.Rannoch
I agree with the above comments. My first thought was that the double hip movement was a bit telegraphic. It probably is, but it's important to remember that this isn't a tournament/MMA technique. I suspect is most applied surprise circumstances the short movement there won't cause a problem.As he put it "most martial artists are better fighters than me - I'm just better at being preemptive.
The double hip is ok in a static setup as a pre-emptive. But totally lacking as a delivery mechanism when things have progressed beyond that and gone "live" and dynamic.As such even though its interesting to learn - its far too specific to program in as any sort of primary means of defense...Id tend towards Mick Coups C2 stuff - all his "primary tools" have arguably more power, are repeatable and cant be used as pre-emptives or "live" tools.Heres mick talking about the hook (which is one of his secondary tools) -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvHMwjZsB7YHook to him (although sodding powerful!) is of limited application in specific circumstances (ie when the head is covered from a straightshot) hence SECONDARY. C2's primary stuff is all about straight powerful shots to the target - repeatedly until the guys neutralised....Peter C's double hip is too specific - the guy needs to be static or VERY predictable - and it lacks repeatability.
