MCMA – Striking Skills

MCMA members should know that the expression striking skills is a label that’s used to identify a specific series of courses. In this system, striking skills are defined as “1. a specific group of art form skills used to symbolize the process of hitting an opponent’s body or parts of it. 2. a specific group of combative skills used in the actual process of hitting an opponent’s body or parts of it”. As a student, your overall focus should not just be on learning the biomechanical events, art form events, or combative events associated with the striking sub-studies. Rather, your overall focus should be directed towards absorbing, accepting, and adopting the physical processes, mental processes, and/or emotional processes that are associated with the striking events.
