The Defensive Combat Posture – Practice

Immediate Practice

5 minutes – Practice the defensive posture and have a partner examine you, or use a mirror or video to examine yourself.┬áCheck:

  • alignment of the hand,
  • lead elbow,
  • shoulders over hips,
  • hips over feet,
  • alignment of feet to the line of direction.

Ongoing Practice

Practice holding the defensive posture for an extended period of time. Start with putting on a timer for one minute, then extend it to two minutes, three minutes, and beyond. Practicing holding a posture can help you develop strong stabilizer muscles and in the long run will make these athletic positions feel not only comfortable but powerful.
