Theory to help you with the Senior syllabus:


Students are expected to talk about the following three areas in relation to the Lat Sau Rotation they are currently studying.
- Environmental and Situational Considerations
- Strategic Positioning and Movement
- Aftermath: Physical and Mental Wellbeing / Legal Implications
Below are some questions and ideas to get you started.
Environmental and Situational Considerations
Multiple Assailants
- Is there a doorway/escape route?
- Obstacles?
- Unarmed / blunt or bladed weapons?
- Are you holding a weapon? Are they?
- Range of weapons
- Why are you controlling?
- Do you need to takedown?
Strategic Positioning and Movement
- Multiple Assailants
- Make it as difficult as possible for more than one person to attack you at a time
- Using hostages effectively to protect yourself
- Using appropriate range/4th CL awareness
- The balance of Agility and Rooting Strategies
- Control their ability to articulate their spine and pelvis. After a Takedown (TD) use Control Position 4
- Control how much pain/pressure you are applying – aiming for no accidental damage
- You should ideally be able to move a person from one place to another – do you need to?
- If it's not working, change
- Do not get hit
- Be in a position to hit them
- Continue moving/striking until they are no-longer a threat to you
- Agility and Rooting Strategies
- Plan: escape/ destroy?
Aftermath: Physical and Mental Wellbeing / Legal Implications
- Can you cope with what you've done?
- Have you thought about how far you're willing to go in advance?
- Are there weapons involved?
- Size/gender/number difference?
What the Law Says...
Section 3.1 of the Criminal Law Act of 1967 states that “Any person may use such force as is reasonable in the circumstances in preventing a crime.”
In terms of Self Defence, ‘reasonable force’ is considered force that is both ‘necessary and proportionate’.
- Necessary: It must be necessary to use force. If it isn’t necessary, you shouldn’t use force.
- Proportionate: The amount of force used to repel the crime/threat must be in proportion to the amount of force needed to achieve your lawful objective.
