Having Fun With Structure and Resistance

Just for Fun...

When you are on one foot, the force has to go somewhere.

The interesting thing is that, if you remain sticky, keep a connection, absorb the shock with a relaxed body, you can let the energy take its own course, suck it in and spit it back out into the "throwing point" it decides to go to.

Just following the bouncing ball (Center of Gravity).

Comments and observations are welcome. Please, lets avoid contentious arguments.

Some back channel communication has prompted me to fine-tune my words. Unlike in my wae-gong expression of "suck in spit out" in my Kenpo Thread, I am not making the "suck-in and spit out" happen. If I stay relaxed and grounded, it just happens. It is like if you had a swimming pool half full of water. Push on the water and you have made a wave. When the wave hits the side of the pool, it comes back. That is what is happening inside my body as long as the wall does not collapse.
