In 6DKF’s free body combat (weapons will be discussed later) there are several types of “contact” with opponents, these are divided into:
- Solid, those (mostly) involving strength and resistance
- Liquid, those (mostly) involving balance and spatial intelligence
- Fluid, those that do not involve (in primary mode) the contact
The solid contacts include:
- Hitting and tackle
- Lock and subdue
- Push and pull
The liquid contacts include:
- Leaning on and semi-leaning on
The fluid contacts include instead:
- Light touch
- Attract and repel
- Body deceiving
The combined use (and consistent with the situation) of these connections with the ambient and with our opponents allow us to have a very wide range of possibilities as well as the full capability to adapt ourself to our opponents.
In future articles we will have a deeper look of these 3 types of interaction in 6DKF.
