Just want to start a discussion. We see lots of controversy regarding stabs versus slashes versus gross motor skill center of mass stuff versus fine motor skills targeted strikes and cuts. In MY opinion, IET and military combative stuff is GREAT for getting someone relatively combat-effective quickly, but should be followed by the years of study which lead to the greater calmness of mind and accuracy necessary for the accurate targeting stuff. PLUS, the gross motor skills basics are then hard-wired into you for the SHTF moments when adrenaline floods the system to the point of NOT being able to pull off the advanced stuff. So, what does everyone else here think? Should the basics be gross motor stuff followed by increasing emphasis on targeting, or do you have a different idea of progression or emphasis, and why?
