The ‘Crossing’ Sacada. (2015 version) Sacadas are one of the four displacement types. This is the second hardest of the displacement series to learn because in both cases (lead and follow) we’re working and developing a very important skill that is required for the back sacada in order for it to work for both roles: Disassociation!
This Sacada is, like all sacadas, an illusion of techniques. The illusion is that it’s the Follower’s walk, and the Lead’s walk that just so happen to intersect! That’s the illusion. The trick in this case with this Sacada, is that now we add not only disassociation to the equation but an Argentine Cross! Which adds a whole other level of ‘cool’ on top of everything else.
This video requires you to have mastered the Argentine Cross. Now you think you have, but rest assured you haven’t, you’re making numerous unconscious or unclear errors, that create problems for both lead and follow, so it’s a good idea to go and watch that video series before you do anything else.
This is a turn, in it’s simplest form. It just so happens that this turn, employs 3 different ideas. 1.) Leading the Follower to an Argentine Cross. 2.) Leading the Follower to their Molinete. and 3.) A Lead Sacada to their Forward, Side, and Back Steps of the Follower’s Molinete!
