Plastron Lessons

This lesson takes its name from the thick leather or canvas padded chest protector that the master wears in order to receive repeated hits from his students. In this lesson, the master refines the form and its function, sharpens the student's technical ability, visual perception, and reasoning ability. These lessons are usually of short duration and of high intensity because the master seeks to improve upon a few specific needs at a time. The lessons proceed from simple to complex.
