Well, inspired by our own /u/etherealwinter who posted this a while ago, and also by my own inability with this martial art, I decided to make another flowchart. One that feels more tailored to the way my mind works (or refuses to).
Although the original flowchart addresses the DVD in its entirety, my mind can't wrap itself around the wholeness of it. It's just too much information and I had to break it down.
I'm afraid I also lack the ability to put up some kind of decent visual scheme, so there's also that. If anyone has any tips on how to improve both the artistic aspect of this (in my head it would be more interactive) and also the martial arts aspect, feel free to let me know.
My goal with this one is to cover step by step, how to go from the knee shield position to end up sweeping your opponent. I have to focus on small sequences like this, before processing other information. In reality, this sequence ended up being not that small to be honest. There are a lot of details to it.
Anyway, below is my attempt:
The flow chart has numbered annotations attached to each step. If you scroll down on the imgur post, you'll see stills from the DVD where each numbered annotation is made evident.
I'm gonna do this to the other sections of the DVD for my personal use. If anyone likes this, I can upload the next ones as well.
Please don't forget this was made by a blue belt and it contains personal notes which might be inaccurate as far as reality goes. I didn't transcribe everything our master Danaher said ipsi litteris,.
My gym is so freaking awkward. Not a bad group of guys, but when we come in before class, youd think we all have asbergers. No one says hi to each other, they pretend they dont see you and than pretend to be pleasantly surprised when they do. People dont talk to one another. It just is so awkward.
Good talent tho.
So my friends want to come to my competition this next weekend. I asked them if they could come to the next one and not this one because I only want my grandpa and mom to be there. My grandma just died recently and its been real tough for my family and I kind of just want my family to be there plus we get to have a intimate family dinner after.
Is this rude? I just dont know how much longer my grandpa will be around and kind of want to dedicate the day just to them.
