Never Let Your Guard Down, a Lesson From Football?

Posted: February 20, 2011

What does a trick play in football have to do with martial arts?  In all sports as well as in life, it is important to never let your guard down.  In football it results in your opponent scoring a touchdown.  In life, or in a self-defense situation, it can result in you getting hurt.

In football it is referred to as a “trick play” or a “gimmick play”.  In the street please be aware that many street fighters have their own “gimmicks”. They like to do things like throwing something at you to make you flinch, before attacking you.  This clip demonstrates in a fun way, why you should never let your guard down.

I hope you enjoy the play.
