Re: Baseline skillset

I'll go along with the power coming from the ground directly through feet, legs, hips, and further up while controlled by center. I'm starting to feel how the center can only control this power/connection when there is that "suit" and/or "piano wire" connection throughout the body, and then admittedly it may be a bit difficult to tell what "moves" first, as it's not so much the movement as the ability to put the ground at a point you choose instantaneously that's important. And then using that facility to move. It's easier to tell when bits "move without connection to the rest" though, or even where the breaks in connection occur (all for some arbitrary level of connection, seeing as I'm a beginner).
