Re: hiriki no yosei/elbow power #1
I hadn't checked back on this thread in a while...good stuff.
My comment on the whole toes thing was to make a point. My understanding as beaten into to me by my instructor is...you never turn on the heels. Like Micheal said the weight shifts back if you do.
Try it! Next-to-impossible to turn on your heels and keep your toes DOWN and weight forward. Not-to-mention, if you turn on your heels you tend to get that rise and fall in your stance as you shift your weight.
