Reply To: Drop step


i would say for me, the most “unnatural” feeling is drop stepping from the interview stance vs the bladed stance. however, while important all around to doing damage while taking ground, from the interview stance i think it most important. the reason for this being, from the interview stance, you are really really trying not to telegraph your strike, no winding up, just explosive from still position. without your weight dropping into that first strike, you’re power will be on a similiar level as the stationary feet example given above.

do your worst, fast and first. i couldn’t break it down any better than above, so i’ll leave it at that.
