Power cannot change direction, structure can.

by admin on 2007/02/09

We constantly work with two aspects of movement: power and structure. On the body the power must be on the outer limbs: Head, finger and feet. In relation to the opponent, the power (physically the outer limbs listed above) must always stay on (point at) the opponent’s center line.

When we say the structure can change, we mean that the elbow, shoulder, kua and knee can rotate to change position. By making the outer limbs stable and the inner limbs move, we create a fork-like structure that embodies structure and power.

In classic terms, it is called, “the energy must always radiate out while the body part must always stay in.”

Physically, the power must always be on (the opponent) while the body must always be off (no force).

This is about the separation of physical and the mind.

I wonder if it is correct to say that the energy radiates through spiral
around the line alignment to the place where I aim. One fraction of time
the energy and body parts which spiral are one.
