Since nobody's posting much lately, I've got a question as an outsider to traditional Cabales Serrada. Why do you guys hit so much to the hand and arm. I worked with one talented player who'd hit the hand and arm , move in and hit the body, then move back out and further abuse my arm! Why not work in from hand and arm to direct body/head shots and finish the job? I heard two responses: one was that the arm was a safer substitute for direct shots when training, and the other was along the lines of hitting the arm being more compassionate. Compassionate! Hey we're talking self-defence against a weapon here.
