Volume Eleven: 
Loose Hands Form One:  The First Two Man Set

This film teaches the first basic two man set taught to completion.   Loose Hands One is the first of eight two man sets taught during the first three years of training.   Loose Hands One emphasizes following the opponents power and counter-skills to "get loose - get free" of the opponents offense.  The complete form is comprised of three sections and contains many of the basic hands, footwork, calisthenic and kicking skills taught in Volumes One - Nine.  Section One includes crescent kicking, down and ups and sweeping.  Section two includes double kicking, sticky elbows, clawing, sweeping takedowns and counter.  Section three includes side kick, back round kick, hammer fist and arm bars.

Suggested Training:

Each Volume should be trained four to five weeks before progressing to the next DVD. Complete Volumes 1 - 10 in roughly one year's time. It is strongly recommended that you begin with Volume One and progress step by step. Skipping any part will result in a lesser understanding and ability. You may order any DVD separately but you will have a lesser understanding and ability without the prerequisite Volumes.
