    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Cross-forum pressure testing session 17th April, Central London (UK)

    Date changed to 17th April

    Might interest someone here.

    Venue to be confirmed. Everyone welcome.

    Please express interest here or better still on Tung Fu forum ( http://p072.ezboard.com/ftaekwondo67...cID=2163.topic ).

    Much like the previous informal London Tung Fu sessions but with a bit of pressure testing worked out beforehand so that we can't wimp out of it....


    NO EGOS


    Any suggestions welcome. A couple which have been talked about before so are good for starters are:

    1. Marker-pen knives.
    Bring an old pale T-Shirt. Attacker (with pen representing knife) attacks in credible but unscripted way, all out (trying to cut/stab etc). Defender applies whatever knife defences -the extent of the pen marks on you indicates the relative effectiveness of your moves.
    How it's done: We start with a test as above. We all get killed lots and think "Oh @#%$!". Then we split up into pairs and spend a good half hour drilling our prefered moves and exploring options. No one dicates what moves you choose to use -it ain't style specific or anything. Then we test again and hopefully, we all get killed less.

    2. The fall test
    Involves doing a front breakfall (not rolling) whilst blindfold and being pushed without warning. Dependant on mats. Can be done from kneeling to start with. Apparently this enduces anticipatory adrenaline and then an A-dump as you're pushed and fall forwards. Sounds like fun.


    We can of course do some rolling and/or light/heavy sparring.

    All friendly of course.


    We'll have to hire a studio somewhere which typically costs 30 in central London -so divide that by however many -should be a fiver or less each. Hopefully much less.
