When blocking a strike, you hand does not strike and retract, but rather continues the forward momentum, in a circular motion so the hand is ready for the next strike...:)

I'm just talking...:)

As I said, looked good!

I actually spent a great deal of time visualizing these paths and the most efficient path back to my opponent. Most of my amateur duels last less than five moves.

My biggest training focus was the parry. Once my blocks were instinctual I focused on carrying the momentum. I use what I call a defensive form 7. It's high energy, momentum heavy, and is fueled by emotion. The biggest difference is the intent of my form. I am to disarm or subdue.

i was just reminded of a line that sort of fits my weapons sparring mentality....

"strike first, strike fast, no mercy" -cobra kai dojo, the karate kid (original)-

Very sith like combat mentality. If there is a place to use those emotions, its behind a light saber.
