Re: The Leather Man

I think it is much harder to put out such ground-based power than it is to absorb, mostly because in ordinary strength "putting out" is an antithesis of "relax" whereas absorbing is not. Maybe that's one reason ground-path training is so hard, and why the exercises (that I know from Akuzawa) tend to work linearly, to imbue the feeling the same way in both directions.
