Cornerstone Lunging Techniques Book and DVD

Close Up Angled Elbow Posterized

One of my personal favorite projects that I worked on several years back was the Cornerstone Lunging Techniques book and dvd.  This project came out very nice and the book and dvd are first rate.  The Cornerstone Lunging Techniques of IRT are big body movements.  These big movements involve utilizing the body very efficient in a whole manner.  The practitioner utilizes leg movement that in turn coordinates with the hips, torso, shoulder and finally into the arms.  When done correctly you have strong structural integrity which allows you to smash into your opponent and deliver a blow designed not only to damage but to break their structure and send them either down or away.  Add weapons into the mix and you have a very effective delivery system.  This type of Cornerstone Lunging Techniques have a strong base and are my interpretation on this form of body movement pioneered in the Bujinkan.

Here is a short video clip of a solo technique that can also be performed with a partner:

    Nice, way back in my Shaolin Long Fist days there were a lot of lunge techniques

    They really can be effective in the moment. They have percussive damage plus they also have that pushing movement that sends attackers flying. When used with weapons particularly bladed ones the damage is going to be pretty devastating. From what I have observed of the Chinese systems out there several do seem to have this type of movement within them. Certainly Budo Taijutsu, many Silat systems, some Indian systems and more also have this type of large body movement as well.

    Great book! I still have mine.

  4. Heya terrific website! Does running a blog such as this take a massive amount work?
    I have very little expertise in computer programming however I had been hoping to
    start my own blog soon. Anyway, should you have any ideas or tips
    for new blog owners please share. I know this is off topic but I simply
    needed to ask. Thanks a lot!

      Once you set the blog up at wordpress it is very easy to manage. I usually spend 5 to 10 minutes a day on it. WordPress even makes the initial setup easy. The most important thing is to have some thing that you are passionate about. For myself that is the Martial Sciences so I find it very easy to find things or write. Good luck!
