Re: Physical Tension - Another Thought

Great stuff indeed! Thanks for the ideas and pointers...
It reminded me of ... :

I found this thread helpful; and, I believe, connects with your views. Here<. Opening the Joints. (That is definitely connected with the pressures in the body)

Also; great postshere too
-"Create a body that does not impede any force"
-6 directions will become "atarimae" or a "given."
The tensions are only there so you can learn the lines. Then it becomes a game of how well you can "relax" those lines "into" the other person.
-I think that helps to "burn in" the lines of tension you need to perform efficient technique. The real hardpart is taking away the frame but still keeping those "lines" there.
