- When you make contacts with your opponent, you must assume that this occurs at the 9 o'clock position. Your opponent is climbing when pushing on you.
- You must also climb up his hill till you reach the top. In this case the top is 12 o'clock and it is the point.
- You must find a way to move beyond this point, causing a fall down from 12 o'clock to 3 and then to 6 o'clock.
- This must be done by holding the front contacting point in position and then stretch what is behind it. Usually this means the spine and the back.
- So when you are pushed, you make sure that your spine is locked and only move the front part of your body.
- When you push back, you lock the front part of your body and only push/extend the back/spine.
