Dear Sensei Airyu,
A very funny story – I was just checking my email to see if you’d posted anything to your blog. And there you were! Thank you for brightening my day. I love reading your posts.
I am currently studying American kenpo karate in Austin, TX. Though, I study in a dojo with men who are quite a bit larger and more advanced than I am. I haven’t learned how to appropriately get hit yet, and I’m often quite exhausted (and very bruised) from class. Last weekend I met up with a friend who studies Systema and he noticed how tense I had become when fighting.
I am having a Systema training session next week, where I hope to work on this with the teacher.
Would you be able to recommend an exercise that I could practice, or book that I could read about this, that would help me relax, especially when taking hits – and from larger people?
Thanks, and please, continue with the posts!
Thank you for being a loyal fan!! I have been away for awhile working on a new release for the site so stay tuned for that, and to answer your question, yes there are many drills that can help you acclimate to being hit. I will post some of these to the site soon!
the art of not being there helps but let your body give when i played ball when they hit me i let my body give like a spring wach a spring when you hit it it gives then your power comes bake to you and hurts your hand
