Re: It's (not?) all in the hips

Kanai shihan felt the hips are the most important place for power. But he also believed in the united body principle that on any technique or throw every aspect, and joint need to be included and pointed in the same direction, but common sense tells us, if one has an injury to obviously you need to change your practice habits to fit your needs, this is not changing styles, it is improvising to continue to practice thats all.
