A pamphlet he gave out.

Comment by Badger Johnson on September 7, 2015 at 5:59pm

Chris, as far as I know GM Jorge is the only one who teaches the augmented 'x-block'. I've asked others and they've never heard of it.

Do you Lastra guys know what I'm talking about? (I can post a drawing if not). It's a great technique, leading to a pressure response, and gets 'tighter' the harder it is pressed. (the X fulcurm).

You can turn it into a sweep and counter very easily, in fact 'it' does that naturally depending on which side of the X vortex is hit (if not the center.

Thanks for the nice comment!

That's a great picture. Thanks for posting.
Comment by Badger Johnson on September 7, 2015 at 1:58pm

I have a few more from one of the pamphlets he gave us. If you like I'll post those later. Time to crash! :)

Hi guys, I just got back from the Airport and have found the pic or two from one seminar that we had back in about 1980-82. Sorry I'm posting them, but it's been a busy Sept with classes and all.

Comment by Edgardo Sayas Lastra on September 5, 2015 at 7:34pm

By all means Badger, I'd love to see your photo
