Finish the Move
Finish the move! That is what our self defense teacher used to yell at us in training.
The way it work was, they taught you a specific move to respond to a specific attack, for example the move is different when someone grabs your throat than when someone tries to punch you in the face.
Often, almost always, you start the move and something goes wrong or something changes, and we would stop, and then he would scream,
FINISH THE MOVE!
Reasoning being, if this was real life and you got the move wrong or something changes, you. can’t. stop. You’d be dead.
So, what I’m trying to say today is, keep going, change it up, adapt, keep pushing forward, but finish the move.
Get skin in the game.
