Re: What is Weight Transfer(Taijuuidou)??

I'm pretty sure this discussion is going somewhere, Erick, and I'm looking forward to any further input from Mike on this. My perspective is as yet very limited, and in the tradition of the 6-direction training, but my perception of various arches in the body and their interactions is making self-study extremely interesting. I also notice that there is a fast oscillation helping to keep stability, in one-legged postures for instance, but my scope is more towards the (perceived by me as linear though with various twists in the routes that they take between end points and across joints) forces that maintain the arches in equilibrium and allow this oscillation to function as it does.
