Using The Hips To Drive Offensive And Defensive Movements

In this clip from our Combat Lab Systema class we are working using the hips to drive movements that are both defensive and offensive at the same time.  Remember that movement of the centre has to move our opponent’s centre mass.  

By snapping the hips we can do this and use this to generate the force for strikes and take downs.
