The Art and Science of Staff Fighting. Bruce Lee once said that the four components of footwork consisted of: Aliveness and naturalness, 3. Instinctive pacing distance , 4. A balanced position at the start and finish. It should be obvious that you cannot use your hands or legs effectively until your feet have put you into position in which you can do so, if you are slow on your feet, you will be slow with your punches and kicks.

Good footwork allows you to hit from any angle and also to follow up your initial attack with more powerful finishing blows. Footwork, in short, "gets you there and gets you out. He told me that "Good footwork can beat any attack.

He wanted me to be able to glide in and out, throwing techniques from all angles after coming into various ranges through footwork. And, of course, he emphasized the avoiding of attacks through footwork. Without footwork, you cannot complete the task of fighting with any degree of efficiency.

Footwork is purposeful movement Many people think of footwork as some sort of bouncing movement, but the one thing Bruce Lee stressed to all of his students was never to move for the sake of 4.

And by then you were flat on your back. The key to success in footwork is to keep it simple. If you aim toward simplification, rather than complex or intricate foot patterns, which more resemble dance patterns than efficiency, your footwork will be smooth, direct and efficient. If you use economy of motion, you will always be relaxed, which is crucial to your reaction time and to the speed of your attacks, defenses and counter-attacks.

These are some of the reasons that footwork seems to me so important. Footwork also serves to enhance your body alignment, which makes your leverage more favorable and your strikes more devastating. Another aspect of combat that is enhanced by proper footwork is speed. I mean footwork is what gets you there to deliver your technique, and out of there, before your opponent can deliver his.

Footwork is not only used to deliver techniques or avoid techniques, but also to set up techniques. Progressive Indirect Attack. It can lure your opponent in to a trap, allow you to gain the proper fighting measure and also bridge the gap to your opponent.

Good footwork accomplishes all of these things. I liken good footwork to operating a four-wheel drive. However, once you learn on the options that avail themselves to you with increased mobility, you realize that footwork is an option provider. In Thai Boxing, for example, you see a lot of "give and take", wherein one fighter will whack his opponent and then stay there and get hit back by his opponent. Such back-and-forth exchanges are common place, and quite often the winner is the one with the highest pain threshold.

JFJKD teaches one how to be a thinking fighter.

A smart fighter. Nobody should opt to get hit particularly when you can substantially reduce the chances of that happening by employing proper footwork. The four basic types of footwork Basically there are only four types of footwork, the rests being simply variations on these four.

The four basic types of footwork are advancing, retreating, circle left and circle right. Incidentally, "circling," as I use the term here, means," sidestepping. You have to feel very comfortable in the On-Guard. You have to feel comfortable at all times so that you are able to react instantly. You need to be so relaxed that whatever happens, you respond to it instantaneously, whether it be the need to immediately advance, retreat or side step an attack.

The On-Guard is the best way to move straight back, forward or to the side. The On-Guard places your strongest side forward, which, in JFJKD is typically your right side, with your strongest hand lifted up so that your fist is in line with your shoulder.

Your chin and shoulder should meet about halfway, with the right shoulder raised an inch or two and the chin dropped about the same distance. The right side of your chin should be tucked into your lead shoulder.

Your left hand is also in close, to protect your midsection. Your right hand is your attack weapon so it should cocked and ready to fire.

The right shoulder is slightly raised and your chin slightly lowered in order to protect your chin and jaw from strikes. The right knee is turned slightly to defend your groin area and your right foot should be rotated in roughly 25 degrees so that, if necessary, you can employ it as a kicking weapon. Your left foot should be angled at approximately 45 degrees. The heel is raised because it is your sparkplug, ready to ignite you forward, backward or sideways, and depending whatever besets you.

It is not utilized typically to execute an offensive technique.

However, it is very effective in gauging and obtaining correct distance from which to launch a strike. You take a step forward and your rear foot left slides up to where the right foot was. Typically your step forward does not exceed six inches, which means that your rear foot travels a maximum of six inches as well.

You should be able to control the weight distribution and be in perfect balance at all times. Push Step The Push Step is used primarily for bridging the gap to the opponent. You can fake with the hand, for example, and then move right in instantly when the opening presents itself.

The Push Step is really the only type of footwork that works well for efficient punching. Footwork always comes after the punch is initiated, the hand moves first and then the feet.

Even in evading a blow, the body should move before the feet. Shuffle Step The Shuffle Step is more like a pulling movement, than a stepping movement.

All of the torque comes from the toes and the balls of the feet. Most of the weight is on the ball of the foot and the toes. Or as Bruce Lee once said: Only when there is stillness in motion, does the universal rhythm manifest. The Shuffle Step The Burst is also a push-pull movement. It is used for a quick advance, for kicking and for punching.

Any Properly executed kick or punch comes off the footwork. From the On-Guard position, the lead leg is quickly drawn back to where your rear leg is, while simultaneously withdrawing your rear leg backwards.

The entire weight of your 9. If you watch Bruce fight against Bob Baker in The Chinese Connection, you will see the pendulum step employed as a means of avoiding an attack and launching a counter kicking attack.

It can be used to frustrate an attack simply by moving every time an opponent gets "set" to attack. It may be used as a method of avoiding blows or kicks.Sport Mechanics for Coaches. Bob Babbit.
