The Art of In­ter­cep­tion

Black Belt - - SCREEN SHOTS -

An ad­vanced form of strategic counter that mod­ern pankration teaches is the in­ter­cep­tion. ,t’s es­pe­cially use­ful against an op­po­nent who shoots in for a take­down. <our goal is to catch him in the mid­dle of his at­tack with an at­tack of your own. If your tim­ing is right, you can punch or knee him in the face as he changes lev­els.

In­ter­cep­tion also works in the stand­ing phase of a fight. 6traight lines can in­ter­cept curves, and lead-side strikes can in­ter­cept those de­liv­ered off the back side. )or ex­am­ple, you can beat your op­po­nent to the punch, so to speak, when he makes the mis­take of drop­ping his hand be­fore strik­ing.
