Re: hiriki no yosei/elbow power #1

Excellent post Michael! Thanks! One Question...sometimes we do this exercise with two people holding on the stance side, one on the non stance side, and our instructor holding - pushing - pulling on our hips, obi from behind. Is this method ever practiced in Japan, and what do you know of the technical reasons behind it?

Also, you seemed to describe the resistence as holding, not pushing...more of keeping a strong kamae while I reading this correctly?
