  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. So when you are pushed, you make sure that your spine is locked and only move the front part of your body.
  6. When you push back, you lock the front part of your body and only push/extend the back/spine.
