Passive vs Fighting Stance

Teach this and follow it with the stance sequence, spearhand and elbow 2.

We all know fighting stance, but in a self-defense situation, do you want to signal the bad guy that you’re ready to fight? No. We want that to be a surprise like stepping on a land mine.

That’s why we use a passive stance. It looks like we don’t want to and are not ready to fight, but we are.
