SONY DSCIn the White Lotus System of Unarmed Combat® the expression throwing skills is used to identify a specific key term within the system’s spoken language and written language. The expression throwing skills is also used to identify a specific category of art form skills and combative skills. In this system, throwing skills is defined as; “1. a specific group of art form skills used to symbolize the process of hurling an opponent’s body or parts of it. 2. a specific group of combative skills used in the actual process of hurling an opponent’s body or parts of it“. In the White Lotus System, the system’s throwing skills are segregated into six distinct categories; 1) Throwing Positions, 2) Throwing Actions, 3) Throwing Presentations, 4) Throwing Techniques, 5) Throwing Tactics, and 6) Throwing Strategies. An in-depth understanding of throwing skills can be achieved as one progresses from basic skill development, intermediate skill development, advanced skill development, to mastery.

Isolated Combative Events

 

 

In the White Lotus System of Unarmed Combat®, the expression isolated combative events is a label that’s used to identify the seventh study in a series of eighteen studies. In this system, isolated combative events is defined as; “the circumstances that are created through the integration of techniques, tactics, and strategies“. Throughout this study the members’ overall focus is directed towards learning how to process isolated combative events. This means learning how to discern, formulate, and execute isolated combative events according to the practices and standards of the White Lotus System. In this study, members are guided through a matrix of isolated combative events. As members proceed through the matrix they’re taught what techniques, tactics, and strategies can be integrated to form valid combative events. They are also taught the technical, tactical, and strategic combination’s that won’t form a valid combative event. As an example, the integration of the following technique, tactic, and strategy will form a valid combative event; Real Striking Actions /

 

Incapacitate Opponent / Conventional Methods of Attack. On the other hand, the following technique, tactic, and strategy will not form a valid combative event; Real Guarding Positions / Incapacitate Opponent / Conventional Methods of Protect. There are two reasons why the integration of this technique, tactic, and strategy will not form a valid combative event. 1. guarding positions are used in the process of keeping one’s body or parts of it from harm. The essential nature of a guarding position is such that it can not be used to hit or grasp an opponent. As a result, it’s impossible to incapacitate an opponent with a guarding position. 2. A guarding position is static in nature. Something that’s static in nature can not be used to achieve a tactical objective that is dependent on a technique being kinetic in nature. No technique that’s static in nature can be used to incapacitate an opponent. In unarmed combat, being able to process isolated combative events is a key aspect of the combative process. It’s at this level of preparation members continue to participate in two man exercises and sparring exercises. This White Lotus study serves as important preparation for learning variable combative events.
