Kali Footwork Strategy: introduction and overview
Strategic Angles: their purpose.
The concept behind Sayoc Kali footwork is based on Newton’s Third Law (Brightstorm, 2012). The law of motion tells us that walking is controlled falling. In other words, when we walk our brain tells the legs to function as a tripod which keep us from falling; thus we regain our uprightness. We combine edge weapon technology with this law in order to gain a strategic advantage over the receiver. For instance, we in essence are the third leg of the tripod. Our objective is to cut off the receiver’s footwork mobility and exploit vulnerabilities in the receiver’s balance, forcing the receiver to become unstable when we perform a leg sweep. Our footwork, thus becomes the receiver’s compensation step.
