Body stretch that you feel pain from would cause a muscle reflection, helps only your muscle to become even stiffer.
At Deffic, we encourage unstrained body stretch with listening carefully to your body.
Once your body is better conditioned, we start warming up by 3-axis body control in front-rear, up-down and left-right, to thoroughly awaken your body sensibility. (Body control is just like body rehabilitation, so we practice it without any rush.)
Posture and footwork are the basics for martial arts. We learn a relaxed, yet stable posture, and/or footwork like a hovercraft sliding around on earth.
We learn basics of offense-defense technique by various limb control systems (throwing, squeezing, open/close, rotation).
We learn 6 major tactics through inter-personal and mitt drills.
Performing these tactics is being an assignment in Deffic’s level examination.
By practicing these, you can install our offense-defense techniques from basics to a higher applications on to yourself efficiently and reasonably.
We mainly practice mass-sparring (ie. soft-touch on face) and light-contact sparring (ie. light impact on protector) with various rules and situation setting.
We hold inter-club tournament every year, though at Deffic, what we ultimately seek is not a fighting technique controlled under specific rules.
We also practice using weapons, applying the tactics in the curricula discussed above.
We mainly practice weapons such as baston, knife, karambit knifes, or sarong, though this is not to encourage you carrying self-defense weapons.
Knowledge about weapons is important to defend yourself.
For example, your guard against a knife thrust helps only your arm to be cut.
Martial art is not something that is optimized to a certain set of rules.
It is an art to evade unexpected combats in various situations, which requires simple motion principles and resourceful measures to meet those situations.
Below are three examples.
