Written Summary:

I guess the best wayto describe what I got out of this tape is to compare it to what we called "onesteps" in TKD. Someone throws a punch, and you step in and execute a seriesof techniques. This tape not only teaches you 8 of these but variations too. I wouldclassify this tape of Mr. Geyston's as an "eye opener". It not only showsyou some creative "one steps", but more importantly teaches you how tocreate open targets within them, and how to use an important concept called "contouring".After watching this tape a few times you should be capable to create many of yourown "one steps".

The tape was really good, and my only complaintwas a sparatic audio problem throughout the tape that drove me crazy. If you're lookingfor a tape that might help you understand how to create your own "one steps",this tape would be a good choice.
