We should now have a greater
understanding of basic initiative and strategy and tactics and how they’re
important to each other today we’re going to cover primary initiatives like
we did in the intro video with a little more detail so we can basically
understand the information that we covered in them stay tuned we’ll talk
about it welcome to Shihan’s Dojo
I’m Shihan Marty Husband and I’m here today to help you build your martial
arts skills and knowledge or if you’re wanting to learn a little bit about the
martial arts tell you a little bit more about it so if you’re here for the first
time jab that subscribe button and punch the bell so we can notify you when you
have a new video coming out the question for today is what type of attack would
you use first if you have to initiate the attack first let us know in the
comments tell us a little bit so we can have a discussion about it as we
discussed with primary initiative in a previous video for the intro we
basically went to understanding that we were attacking the opponent before they
could actually implement something against us there are many things though
a person has to understand when there are the ones actually leading with the
attack if you’re doing it for sport it’s not a big deal
if you’re planning on using this in a fight plan as an understanding for
self-defense you have to understand it legally so you don’t get yourself in
trouble if you ever have to defend yourself maybe you feel threatened or
there are actions showing that they were about to attack or many other factors
but you have to understand these before you ever consider needing to use it this
way in self-defense the basic purpose of primary initiative will help us to
better or correlate what we’re going to do with the interception initiatives and
the delayed initiatives that you can use and further help us to understand how we
might implement our fight plans a couple of factors you have to note when you’re
getting ready to do this attack is one how far is your opponent away from you
and second what is the most direct target that is in front of you when you
note these this is going to help you to understand how not to Telegraph to your
opponent that you’re about to initiate the attack so you’re able to completely
seized that opportunity first in sport it really doesn’t matter because it is a
part of some people’s fight plans already but in the street you have to
recognize your own self-defense plan and you also have to be assured of what
you’re trying to calm when you defend yourself now let’s break
down these primary attacks in details understanding how it affects this
primary initiative primary initiatives are one’s own attacks that are initiated
with the intention of hitting someone else either to deter them escalate the
fight or elevate the attack level the basic concept behind this is you’re
trying to counter-attack before their it can start their offensive but these
videos I’m basically just showing you somebody picking up their hands and
getting ready to fight so I can give you a description of okay that’s an
initiative that he’s trying to start a fight
in the situations I’ll be sharing with you I’ll be basically had the opponent
hold up their hands and go into a fighting stance to show that they’re
preparing for an attack it doesn’t predominantly have to be this type of an
action to know somebody’s going to attack but this is just for the
references in this video note that you will see that I’m not going for speed or
making contact just trying to give you the basic understanding and premise of
what we’re trying to share with you and understanding each of these primary
attacks it’s really up to you in the end what is your techniques that you like to
use and how you can apply them into these types of initiatives and attacks
the first one we’re going to talk about is basically a head-on attack to some
styles it’s basically known as a simple attack or basically ty no sin in
Japanese styles in doing this the fighter basically launches a clear crisp
technique at the opponent before they are even aware of what’s about to happen
if sometimes is a finite technique or sometimes it’s just a lead-in to get the
advantage also there’s no preliminary actions which could be a disguise or a
feint or something that could let the opponent know something’s about to
happen it’s just basically taking the most direct route or path to the target
you’re intending to attack whether it’s the target the face the hands the legs
the body it doesn’t matter but it’s a direct to that target there can be no
hesitation when launching these techniques you have to just do it
without thinking it’s something it has to be trained and instilled inside of
you so you can go further in being able to quickly dispatch what you have to do
the second one is basically the idea of changing postures this is sometimes
known as an indirect attack or unasyn this indirect attack is used to deceive
by moving or evading from a person either to attack the side of their body
or an open target that you’re trying to get to changing this line of attack
sometimes causes the opponent to not and what’s going on and maybe change how
he’s standing or the reactions he’s trying to do in a sense this can confuse
them and maybe make them try to reset themself up so they can begin their
attack the deceptive nature of the movement is not a feint or anything like
that it’s just to basically get the better angle for the attack or cause the
opponent to move some part of their body and in order to attack them the third
type is basically known as the charging initiative sometimes it is referred to
as basically a direct attack or Kennison and Japanese martial arts charging
usually entails attacking an opponent with multiple techniques either to
overpower em or make em move in a direction where you can attack him more
efficiently you’re still beating him to the punch and making sure that your
attack is before he can even initiate or respond to what’s about to happen to
them other than try to protect themselves
charging not only confuses them but tends to make them move backwards if
they see it coming when they go backwards the attacker then can speed up
and actually catch them a lot faster because it’s a lot slower to move
backwards than it is forward and moving backwards this can also prevent them
from being able to step forward with an attack or sometimes move to the side
they would have to have really good footwork because this a type of attack
is usually so brutal it will cause a panic and they will sometimes lose the
concentration of what they’re trying to do the next one is called basically
distance or heb Oishi in Japanese martial arts this is a way you pressure
your opponent be able to change your distance where you can attack
efficiently whether it’s a kick a punch a grapple whatever you need at that
point it doesn’t really matter how far away you are but it will help you to
break through the opponent’s guard and be able to get in there more readily it
can be very dangerous if you don’t understand what can happen at certain
distances in many instances the opponent might actually like that change or take
advantage of that by attacking or changing their own distance to make you
uncomfortable so you have to be wary of that the primary initiative that we’re
going to talk about now is basically known as the rhythm initiative and there
are several types that can be used in trying to accomplish this type of an
attack boxers and fighters sometimes get into a rhythm of shifting back and forth
or their stances and even using jabs and punches in order to set up a rhythm in a
their opponents mind and then break that rhythm by hitting them with a half beat
there are other ways to do it by attacking some
in what we call a to beat or a three beat pattern I’ll show you here just
real quickly how it should kind of feel you’re getting the tap tap and you go
but an understanding rhythm you really have to work hard in training it and
understanding how to break rhythm when you’re doing that either by doing other
things such as who bud or whatever type of rhythm drills you can do block attack
like if you ever watched some of Bruce Lee’s movies where he would actually put
his hand up against someone else’s hand and then attack that is still kind of a
breaking of a rhythm because you’re putting pressure on each other and you
break that pressure which actually breaks the rhythm here I’m basically
using ability the double rhythm to get in on the opponent they see me make a
tap and then tap again they’re not sure at what point I’m going to attack just
seeing the rhythm of that first attack makes them hesitate a bit
and on the second rhythm I can actually attack because their hesitation will
allow them to not see it coming this is sometimes called Nino co-ceo she or the
two-step in Japanese types of martial arts other things that might be for
timings is like attacking the hand or object or weapon that is in front of you
and then launching the attack right off the bat there that to itself is a rhythm
style of fighting so a person has to be aware of that as I said there are many
factors that also go into this and we’ll cover them in future videos after this
series I plan to do things on covering the five ranges of attacks and basically
the five ways of attack it can basically be used in this primary interception or
delayed tactics and initiatives this will be beneficial in your self-defense
situations and sport fighting too if you’re into that it will give you a
better understanding of how and why to attack an opponent in those types of
manners in the next videos we’ll tackle interceptions and delayed initiatives
and break them down in a little bit more detail now if you like this video click
the like button down there share with your friends let them know about jion’s
dojo so we can make Shihan’s dojo grow if you have any comments or ideas for
the videos or even simple questions leave them down in the comment and we’ll
try to get back to you as soon as possible
and don’t forget the question of the day when you have to attack first in a
self-defense situation what is the primary attack you’re going to use and
we hope to see you again here on Shihan’s Dojo
