Re: Chris Parkerson and Structure (from Kotegaeshi resistance thread)


I am not arguing leverage over structure. In fact, I suspect I can see a lot more than I am being given credit for. I am a real fan of structure. I, however, have to work with my own limitations in it. That's all.

If my techniques appear like someone is just being a trained seal (compliant uke), well these tapes were for another purpose and not made today for this one. The uke's are, however, cooperative until the last one. Yes, uke there is the level of shodan. His structure is less formidable.

But it is hard to discount the principles of mechanical advantage. They are just part of applied physics and could add to the "objective testing" of one's structure. Again, I meant no offense.
