Todays TDA Tip: Protect your centerline

Why did the guy on the left (Sam) get hit? Direct route in. Notice the lead-off fighter throws a weapon between the two. The counter-fighter attempts to use the side-kick counter, but it's too slow compared to the jab. The reason this worked is that the counter-fighter's lead was low, and aimed at the floor. Remember to keep a weapon between yourself and the opponent. In this case, if the counter-fighter had his lead up and aimed (covering the centerline), the opening wouldn't have been there in the first place.
