Re: Motion capture systems and martial arts

We need a "diff" function where if I am having trouble throwing someone, we can record it. Then we can get some sempai of similar size to throw that same uke. We need a read out of things like, successful attempt had 20% more wrist rotation, was 5 inches closer just prior to the unbalancing, and the nage making the unsuccessful attempt had a different foot forward, and was 14 degrees more bend over from the sucessful nage...

It could be hooked up to a major database and the successful attempts on basic technique for various body types could be saved and accessed by the internet.
