Plans Within Plans

The 11th Student Grade (abbreviated to 11SG) is the second of three grades which together make up the Advanced Stage of the FWTS Training Programme.

The purpose of the 11SG programme is to develop those new concepts introduced in the previous grade, and to improve your confidence and ability when working with speed & power. Because your training partner is now constantly attacking you hard & fast, you’ll discover it pays to develop two new attributes: First, an excellent sense of timing, and second, the ability to hide your intentions from a potentially faster, stronger opponent.

Put simply, feigning something means that you give the impression of doing one thing, and in reality do something completely different. Simple to understand, but not easy to do effectively against a skilled, experienced opponent. Selling a ‘dummy’ is only really convincing if you are capable of doing BOTH things – the feint, and the hidden intended action itself. Anyone who has learnt to read body mechanics just won’t be fooled if your set-up is wrong. You’d have been better off just doing what you initially intended.

Timing comes into play here because the change from feint to actual intention must happen at the last possible moment, and even then there is the possibility of your strike being defended. Remember also that two can play this game, and there is every chance that your opponent may be setting a trap for you by feigning a gap in their defence.

Feints within feints, plans within plans – explore this, and hopefully the concept of metaplanning will become part of your awareness.
