On behalf of Expert Village, my name is MasterDave Herbert with the World Martial Art Center in New York City.
I'll be demonstrating somehapkido staff techniques.
The opponent's choking me with 2 hands.
I shift my weight back slightly,especially if he's bigger and stronger he's putting on you.
So he's pushing forward.
Ishift back with that and my staff comes up underneath the chin and into the throat.
Thisis a stabilitating strike.
Before he's going back, I shift away and I strike the groin.
I shift back, striking up either the throat underneath the chin.
I create spaceputting pressure here.
As I step back more, I strike up into his groin.
Then slide out,then whole body going forward.
Now for real time.
