Re: The "Jo Trick" and Similar Exercises

Alright some video for those that have time to kill

http://www.badongo.com/vid/120586

It's a vid taken earlier last year of the push demo I elaborated on earlier.
The small guy pushing him(miyagawa), while not big, is pretty strong for his size, not to mention someone who made it to the Kyokushin Finals here in japan (Did kyokushin for about 8 years).

Physically Ark should be weakest heel to toe, but he's still able to manipulate Miyagawa and toss him around a bit, while staying planted, with knees locked.
It's not a pretty demo, no one goes flying through windows, but if you know what you're looking at, you'll realize how hard it is to do. Actually if you have any doubts try and do it yourself

PS
He does the same thing to people that weigh about 200 lb, and ironically it gets easier with people that're more "built".
I''ll post video of that when we take it, especially since we have a new muscle head in the class
