You can be creative and find training landmarks that will induce students to move and master the curriculum of one hundred and fifth techniques. Obviously when you are kicking you need one foot on the ground to stand on and the other for kicking...
Attacks and defensive tactics are broken down to various techniques with designated terminology. The landmarks of training also called by the founder of Krav Maga, Imrich Lichtenfeld, emphasis points are helpful explanation and instructions that contribute to the uniqueness of each technique execution.
Once you have all the essential emphases point for each move, you need to consider the way you teach and train to optimize the process. Your end goal is really not the landmarks in training but the landmarks in execution.
Starting with emphasis points of lunging quickly utilizing the element of surprise, base foot lands at forty five degree to maximize the stretch range of the kicking leg, utilizing the motion of the torso to help gravity propel the kick and retraction when the kick is over back to ready position for your next move if necessary, you master kicking...
These sequential Landmarks called Sequential Execution by Pure Krav Maga Founder Boaz Aviram.
What is so important with these, is that if done right they contribute to the success of the technique application in combat. If not, the retracts from it! You need to see each technique not as a fluid motion but instead to think that you are running in a maze and each step is your navigational stop and go point.
When you generate impact you basically follow lunge, thrust and retract the arm, ensuring the shoulder with the body weight are followed right before the impact and the forearm retracts immediately when it extends fully( or slightly less if you muffle the force)letting the rest of the body take its time finishing his motion forward, and come to a stop. Then your brain is looking first where you need to go next instead of wasting idle time in coming back to centercourt.
With kicks, since your torso helps maintain balance during kicking in maximum range, and also drives the force of the kick with gravity, it kind of moves simultaneously with the kick just like the arms and body in boxing.
With defenses tactics, you either preemptively attack, move out of the way and attack, or follow a sequence that will ensure the usage of your body in the last split seconds of the element of surprise.
Tactical landmarks are critical in techniques generating impact and are more crucial during the training stage in a sense when you teach how to punch and kick. Tactical landmarks in weapons defense are greater in quantity and take little longer to count and drill. They are more of like navigational stop and go. You must maintain the order of execution of each technique. Deflect the straight knife stab with your forearm, leap forward maintaining guard of the forearm with opponent's wrist preventing repeat attacks, grab, counter attack, and extract the knife.
