I was once treated to an interesting demonstration by Professor Wally Jay, whose system is called "Small Circle Ju-jitsu." He appeared to be in his sixties at the time he paid a visit to our little Wing Chun kwoon.

Lemme tell ya, if this guy managed to get hold of your wrist, you were history. There was no way to escape. His sense of distance, his ability to stay just out of range of any possible counter while relentlessly, completely controlling you, was absolutely uncanny. What was really impressive was that he was indeed just out of range, and not an inch further. Very affable man, too, humble as you could ask for in a genuine master martial artist.

On the other hand, at the same demo one of his leading local disciples (IIRC, Sensei Jay himself was from Hawaii), a huge guy with an equally big ego, tried putting a rear choke hold on me. He was really trying, too.

I simply sank and turned my chin into his hold to relieve the pressure, reached back and down, and gently let him know that if I'd wanted to, I could have crushed his testes. He was very embarrassed that I'd done this... hey, don't touch my balls! Sorry pal, but all's fair in a real fight.

Of course, you can also forget all those years of study and training and defeat any opponent with the following move. Just extend your forefinger right at his face and say, "You better watch it pal-- I know kung fu!" [Big Grin]

There's a book i read that teaches something called the 64 steps. The sixty four steps is a a radius of circle sixty four steps long (duh). Every step that you take leads to another pattern of steps and so on and so forth. As a result, you can learn to out wit and pretty much maneuver your enemy into wherever you want him. Coupled with the ability to read movements, you become EXTREMELY devastating in your martial arts.
