In my quest to uncover the continuity of Karuhat’s style one of the things he is drawing me toward is simply walking into the next strike. Like walking just in a normal fashion. He’s cutting out more dramatic switch steps at several points, and some of my knee stepping, just to get me to flow forward into the space that is open before me. I often liken it to swimming like a shark, continuously, in the same soft, slow motion, which becomes contrasted with the strike. The difficulty in all of this is that this fluidity needs to be coupled with reading. Part of my investigation into movement tells me that while imitating “Thai” rhythm, I’ve developed an emphatic rock back, in particular when I’m about to kick. I began working to correct this with a focus of putting my weight on the front foot primarily.
