Hey family, I hope you had an amazing week this week. Today we are going to talk about what arguably may be the most important sentence in Ngo Dac Na and maybe even in all of martial arts.
That sentence is: You have to be a C.O.P to know your F.O.E.
The reason this is so important is because without understanding this concept you can never truly understand how to deal with your opponent. So let’s break this down further.
C.O.P. (Consistency Of Pressure). If you have this then you will know your F.O.E. (Force of Energy).
Once you can feel this, then it will become easier to find the P.O.C.K.E.T. (Point of Contact Kinetic Energy Transfer).
Here are some references from your lessons:
If you haven’t seen these lessons yet, then now is a great time to check them out. If you have seen them, go over them again. Get these principles of Ngo Dac Na to really sink into your conscious and subconscious mind, so they will become second nature to you.
Once you have watched those videos, then I want you to watch the bonus footage from our last seminar.
Specifically I want you to watch from 6:25 in that video I talk about how to get your body connected from head to toe.

These concepts are very important for you to understand. By being a C.O.P. you can feel effectively what your opponent’s energy is doing.
For example: You will be able to know if your opponent’s energy is going to the ground or to you. You will also be able to feel things like if their energy is bleeding back into their own shoulders, etc….
When you perfect your C.O.P. technique you will be able to process what your opponent is doing in less than a second and that my friends is powerful to say the least.
Enjoy learning and/or revisiting these concepts and get into the habit of reminding yourself when you train and go about your daily life if you have Consistency of Pressure (C.O.P.), if you are in the P.O.C.K.E.T. (Point Of Contact Kinetic Energy Transfer) and if you know where the F.O.E. (Force of Energy) is and if so, do you know how to Bend and Blend Energy (B.A.B.E.) to tame it?
Now on to your training…
