/* This procedure is especially designed
to redirect disturbances
away from their initial target. */
This procedure uses the already existing
and slides across them, rather than against them,
to redirect the incoming flow.
The following sequence can be used to activate
Upon encountering tension do not resist its surface instead, slide across it taking the tension with you.
0. expose yourself to an impulse 1. catch the incoming impulse momentum 2. in~corporate this impulse into your own direction, 3. accelerate the flow /* similar approach is used in surfing */
Seduction // from se- aside, ducere- lead
Saying “yes, and” instead of “no, but”
Continue the common movement to find a new bodyformstructure Attach to the structure that produced the incoming impulse start controlling their motion; change roles; constantly change roles, take over and give up control.
On of the main principles in ∞OS is to embrace the incoming impulses, instead of responding to tension with tension. The idea is that when something is coming your way (be it a punch, a difficult situation or a problem), you do not resist it immediately and you do not let it take you into its flow completely. Rather, you em~brace the incoming impulse, adopting your bodymind~form to it, letting it slide across your surface, and responding back into it, once you created an "impression" that it has reached its goal (so that its intensity decreases).
The demonstration above shows how the Redirection Procedure can be used not only to respond, but also to bring the whole system to a new state of equilibrium.
When an incoming impulse occurs, the receiving part of the common structure becomes a wave for this impulse to slide on. The wave takes the impulse, gaining control of the center, and using this opportunity to shift the system to a new state of equilibrium (in this case bringing the partner down).
Of course, this can also be used in negotiations or any other interactive situation, outside of the strictly self-defense context.
