Hey Ron John and crew...
That last video on tai Chi was a wonderful display of training points.
I took this film for fun at the Mojo today.
My take on the excellent throws that accompany the Tai Chi Push hands displays shown in the threads above is that allot more has to be put into than just Pong training. In fact, as you know, my pong don't ping so good anymore because of my Tight psoas. I guess in Ebonics, you just might call it a "tight so(re) ass".
I began to focus on the area of dynamics that studies "bodies in motion". It is called kinematics. How can my movement set up the other guy so that he is ready to be bounced.... Then I let my freight train (kinetic energy) do its work. Much less stress on my old torn up body.
I have loaded up a video stream of simple Tai Chi Press to show an example of how much energy I can get out of "setting up" the opponent. My "set up" is done using a very small circle and both floats and destabilizes uke. I will be using larger circles in some more videos with better lighting as we took some other films with a better camera. But for now, here is the in vitro idea.
later I will upload the display of the principle using large and small circle Aikido techniques.
Just a quick post.
