Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: Mahalo dance expert Professor Lock explains how to do the pace. About the Pace --------------------------------------------------------------------- There many different variations of the pace, and this move is used to keep rhythm when locking. It basically involves making a tapping motion with your hands while bouncing your knees in beat to the music with an occasional drop. Step 1: Pacing Your Hands --------------------------------------------------------------------- You start off by positioning your fingers the same way you would if you were tapping a pencil. Pretend you're tapping this imaginary pencil to your side and then swing it away from you. End with bringing the tapping motion back towards you.?Do the tapping motion in the video four times on each side. Do this tapping motion with a little bounce in your knees and lean a little bit in the same direction you're pacing in. Step 2: Pacing Your Arms --------------------------------------------------------------------- Now that you have a basic pace move mastered, you will do a center pace where you cross your hands in front of you while doing the pacing motion with your fingers.Remember to continue bouncing up and down slightly since this helps to keep you in rhythm.? Step 3: Pacing Your Legs --------------------------------------------------------------------- The third element of building up a skilled pace is kicking one leg out while pacing. You achieve this by sticking out one leg at a time and bringing the hand of the same side up from the elbow like you would in an arm roll.You then move your feet like you're marching, and once this is done, move over to the other side and repeat the same motion. In between marches, drop down slightly, bending your knees halfway to the ground. Read more by visiting our page at:
