Stick Fighting: Basic Covering Defense In Long Range
Defending a Single Direct Attack (Forehand or Backhand) using the 4 Primary Covers in Stick Fighting. Can you tell which ones are they?/
This is very basic but essential. It’s always a good idea to start a class or a seminar with some basic defense. Start by feeding a relaxed and fluid strike, then progress by adding more speed and power to it, in order to drill reaction, footwork, and the appropriate cover.
