This week at Crossing Fight School, our look at use cases for the 5 Hidden Hews will continue. Last week’s class appeared to go rather well, and I suspect that it gave more than a few of us a new way of looking at something very familiar.

An interesting potential side effect of the exercises we’ve done so far is that they appears to assist fighters in incorporating the associated techniques into their sparring. If this is indeed the case, I hope that this trend continues. In particular, what we did involving breaking patterns and the spontaneous deployment of certain cuts could prove very useful in this regard.

This week, our focus will be on the Zornhau and Zwerchhau, and (hopefully) all their incarnations and applications, both in the Vor and Nach.

See you all on Sunday.
