The whole purpose of the stand and the technique is to commit as little weight as possible. The purpose behind it is to get your attacker to pause so you can escape just like you posted.

The reason is because once you do the first modules of the SDTS, you want to attack, take ground and drive your enemy.
This is a bell that’s hard to “unring” and you don’t have to.
Typically we teach Module 5 only to people who want the bare minimum. For that, it’s perfect. But once you start Module 1, there’s no turning back.
So why don’t we teach Module 5 first?
Because I know what you want and it’s not Module 5.
