Re: playing with weight and a question

Wow, you really can make your feet get heavier by not only taking your opponents weight and adding to your weight, but by adding even more pressure/weight.

I also learned today that making my opponenet hold up my bodyweight doesn't work nearly as well as counterbalancing my own arm weight elsewhere. If I just rest my weight then the quads push back if I try and walk forwards while my partner exerts pressure on me. Instead, if i can counterbalance it it seems like the kua can push down to add extra pressure to what my opponent is giving me.
