Description
 
Combat Evolution - Footwork Mat - The Prototype™ - Simulator

These footwork mats are 2 meters squared (approx 6.56 feet x 6.56 feet). They are high-quality plastic coated cast, waterproof and of incomparable durability. They are also highly portable - very easy to pack and take anywhere. The Prototype™Mats (see description of Prototype below) are available in three versions: The Simulator, the Bridge, and the Perception.

This listing is for the: Simulator Mat - Check the size and Mat description below to make sure you order the right one for you.


The Simulator Mat


The SIMULATOR is a chart and map of all the Wing Chun steps, kinesiology, techniques, dimensions, distances, central lines and geometry of the body. All of which is calculated with mathematical precision down to millimeters. You, either alone or with a partner, can learn all of the possible techniques that the art offers - with absolute precision - and then you can perfect them realistically.

The Bridge Mat

The BRIDGE is a chart and a map for Chi Sao and Technique/Drill practice from the front stance. The outlines and kinesiology are specific with numeral coherence. This fact, helps you to assimilate the correct steps, distances, dimensions as well as the geometry of the techniques and the body with absolute precision.

The Perception Mat


PERCEPTION is similar to the Bridge Mat, but more specific to double-handed Chi Sao when starting from a neutral stance. The outlines and kinesiology are specific with numeral coherence. This fact, helps you to assimilate the correct steps, distances, dimensions as well as the geometry of the techniques and the body with absolute precision.


Sizes:


Please use the data below to figure out the correct size mat for you. If you do not fall within these measurements, we can custom make you a mat based on your own unique characteristics... However it will ship from Greece and cost about $50 shipping. Please let us know if you are interested in a custom-made mat.

If there is a discrepancy in the height and shoulder width, use shoulder width to pick your size - it more accurately reflects your footwork spacing for proper structure.

Size 01 : Height 1.50 m (4 ft 11 in) // Shoulder Width: 40-49 cm (15-19 inches)
Size 02 : Height 1.70 m (5 ft 7 in) // Shoulder Width: 50-59 cm (19-23 inches)
Size 03 : Height 1.80 m (5 ft 11 in) // Shoulder Width: 60-69 cm (23-27 inches)
Size 04 : Height 1.90-2.0m (6 ft 3 in) // Shoulder Width: 70 -79 cm (27-31 inches)


Shipping

These mats are currently drop-shipped from Greece. They are about $65 via UPS to the US/Canada (you might also have to pay a import tax in some areas), and they are about $45 to the UK/EU via the Post Office. email us for questions/other locations. Multiple Mats can be shipped at a discount.


The Prototype™ Footwork Mats:

The PROTOTYPE™ gives you the opportunity to touch perfection in the development of combat and experience the maximum dynamics your body can generate by using it.

For the first time in the history of martial arts we have an interactive training tool that transcends the divisions of any martial art or combat sport, opening new horizons focusing on man and his potential. It is an achievement that redefines the way of training, highlighting in detail all the elements that will help you to consciously evolve to an excellent fighter. As each person is unique, so is the PROTOTYPE™.

Years of Scientific studies regarding the geometry of the human body are within this ultimate training tool.
  • Ideal for all ages, level, place or room.
  • The Prototype™ perfects all the steps, the body posture, balance, kinesiology in all its spectrum, the geometrical dimension, the perception of distances in connection with the opponent – in educational or realistic level – as well as the concept of the upper and downward central line.
  • With the Prototype™, the trainee can be trained in every form of technique, either it is of basic or advanced level and in every possible combination of these which may arise.
  • The Prototype™ is absolutely scientifically substantiated and precise.
  • The Prototype™ is manufactured and certified according to the highest specifications of quality in the worldwide market.
For the SIFU - The Prototype™ helps the trainer in the theoretical explanation and practical correction of the trainee in the following:
  • all the steps
  • the body posture
  • balance
  • Kinesiology in all its spectrum
  • the geometrical dimension
  • the perception of distances in connection with the opponent, whether in educational or realistic level
  • the meaning of the upper and downward central line
  • and last but not least the science it comprises, indicating even the smallest mistake of the trainee with millimeter precision.
For the TRAINEE - The Prototype™ is very easy as far as its understanding and use is concerned. The Prototype™ helps the trainee to :
  • fully understand and perfect all the steps
  • the body posture
  • balance
  • Kinesiology in all its spectrum
  • the geometrical dimensions
  • the perception of distances in connection with the opponent whether in educational or realistic level and the meaning of the upper and downward central line.
The Prototype™ is an essential training tool with which the trainee can, either individually or with a partner, construct, observe , develop and integrate innumerable techniques.


The Innovation

In our times, the learning of a martial art, can be achieved by enrolling in a special school, where experienced instructors undertake the teaching and training of those interested collectively or individually.

In this way, trainees understand the correct movements and techniques through visual, verbal and corporal guidance from their instructor and then try to reproduce them. In this effort, useful assistance can be audiovisual aids of various types, orientated sometimes for the trainee and the training, and on other occasions for the instructor himself and the easier conduct of the lesson.

However, the biggest disadvantage that the practice has up to today is the lack of individualization in order to achieve perfection of the movements of martial arts. In other words, even within the bounds of taking private lessons from a private instructor, where the recommendations for the correct posture of the body and movement are done individually for each trainee, it is impossible to achieve perfection in the fulfillment of the final move or the completeness of the body posture, as the reproduction-copy of the trainee from the instructor is affected by a series of factors. We typically refer to the trainee’s capability of perception which is divided into the general perception of space and movements and the more specific perception of sense which lies in small movements and details. The small movements and details cannot easily be checked or understood by individuals such as the angle of viewing, kinesiology, body formation, the precise geometry of techniques and many others.

The Prototype™, taking advantage of all the body postures, in combination with the science of Biomechanics and based on the many years of studies of the human physiology and anatomy, points out to the trainee in the form of depictions, the correct places to put the legs and arms, during the training and the performance of the techniques. The trainee following all these depictions is capable to perfectly perform all the kinesiology of the art.

With the Prototype™ the way of teaching and learning changes revolutionarily from the beginning, which in the present case is the correct posting of the body. It is a fact that in every martial art the main issue is the proper and complete movement and later the progress of it. Every movement consists of a combination of a coherence of smaller movements, which all have as a starting point the legs of the trainee. The legs are the point of support of the body and as a result , the correct posting of them entails the proportional alignment of the torso and ending in the complete posture of the body, which when achieved in every movement in conditions of defense or attack, it improves the materialization of this movement increasing the dynamics and decreasing the weakness of the trainee.

For the very first time, with the Prototype™, there is a complete record of all the proper body postures and all the possible movements, so that the trainee will be able, on his own and with a partner, to train and perfect all the techniques easily and directly. What the trainee has to do is to put his legs on the corresponding, each time, indications and move based on the outlines. What is excluded is the possibility of error in the posting of the body, which is of vital significance for all martial arts, because the trainee follows the outlines of the Prototype™ and will be able consciously to proceed in the perfect carrying out of the movement he pursues. - Sifu Spantsios Constantine
