Re: A Woman's Center

Perhaps some confusion from my post.

I never even considered whose center of gravity is lower or whether women are more imbalanced than men. Frankly I've worked with so many body types that I could not possibly make a generalized statement.

However, quite a few beginners move as if their center of gravity is much higher it actually is. I find that simply tying your belt around the hips rather than the waist often goes a long way to solving the problem.
