Re: Defining Kokyu
I agree with you that you cannot practice kokyu ryoku on a wall. I was using that to try to get the picture of how to set up proper body mechanics to deliver energy and partly because someone else had mentioned it earlier. I'm not sure I understand the technical part of what you were saying about pushing a little to take balance and then pushing alot???
Could you explain in more detail exactly where the power in your push comes from again in terms of body mechanics describing uke's stance also. Just curious.
Please explain the jo trick. Nothing fancy, just what happens as I really have no idea.
