Joint and Socket Separate – Joint Rotating Endows Forces with Multi-directionality

In a number of my previous posts, I have emphasised the importance and the role of multi-directional forces. In this short post, I try to give a supplementary explanation, which is kept simple and hopefully can help practice. To simplify for the sake of discussion, let’s regard that whenever there is a joint, there isContinue reading “Joint and Socket Separate – Joint Rotating Endows Forces with Multi-directionality”

The Wrapping Intent – Wrapping around the Contact

What I am trying to depict in this post may be considered to be too imaginative, prone to be criticised as unrealistic and in fact unnecessary. However, it appears to me as something can’t be omitted should the exposition of the point-linked mechanism be completed, as it manifests the gist and essence of the mechanism.Continue reading “The Wrapping Intent – Wrapping around the Contact”

What’s Happening at Forearm Contacts? – Microscopic Deflection

“Why are multi-directional forces a desired advantage? When the opponent exerts a strong force on your forearm, at any particular moment the force is strong in one direction only. However, at that same particular moment your contact with him is rich in diverse forces – some are in directions appropriate for containing his unidirectional force,Continue reading “What’s Happening at Forearm Contacts? – Microscopic Deflection”

Illustrations – Project, Converge, Elbow Pin, Multi-directional Forces

I try to illustrate by drawings what have been covered in some previous posts, namely, How to Focus? Converging for Control Zone – Amoeba Membrane Analogy, What is Elbow Power? – Solid and Immense to Opponent, Light to You, and Multi-directional Forces in the Arm – Pinning Elbow Tip in Space. Two movements in the second partContinue reading “Illustrations – Project, Converge, Elbow Pin, Multi-directional Forces”

Multi-directional Forces in the Arm – Pinning Elbow Tip in Space

In the last post we explored how elbow power represents the body momentum, and proposed that its properties are preferably described as solid and immense, in contrast to the idea of heaviness people usually aim at. In the end of the post I highlighted that such elbow power is foundational to multi-directional forces in armContinue reading “Multi-directional Forces in the Arm – Pinning Elbow Tip in Space”
