I didn't know you understand Japanese language (and actually, the word is connected to culture as well, so it's not just the literal dictionary meaning - but the meaning you get from actually learning the language and living there) - so tell us what 'hikki-te' is then...
http://www.fightingarts.com/ubbthreads/s...=0#Post15987943


no you haven't derailed Gavin - I'm sure the topic of boxers demonstrating hikki-te has much more to do with chi-balls than when I 'derailed' by bringing up meridian hypothesis.


The way it works in the IMA/PP section is, if you mention something agreeable, then you are 'on topic'. mention something disagreeable, and it's off topic.

see?


on topic:
question: "where did chi-balls come from?"
answer: the immagination.

Gavin,
I use several different types of punching, including fa jing striking, where the body "shake" is used. I know that the hikki te adds to the punch, but there are different types of cross extensor reflex movements that can be used. I'm just as apt to hit somebody with a "locked forearm" vertical Isshin Ryu punch as a "snap jab" or a traditional Shotokan punch or Shuri Ryu punch... then, again, you might just get one of those ugly Tai Chi punches that don't fit the "traditional mold"... It isn't what style or type you use... it's hitting with power that's important... and we're on the same page... there's just more than one way to skin a cat (not many ways that the cat likes it, though... )

Was trying to keep it simple mate. Was trying to emphasise that its not the arm movement of the hikki te that is important but the body mechanic that is powering it, pretty much the same for the punch at the end of the day. And how you access those cross extensors is as dynamic as the punch itself.

Someday, some of the real "krotty" people will learn that, and we'll see their game step up to being for real rather than As I tell students all the time, it's a "level of understanding" thing... once you understand the body mechanics... it's a whole different game... total control, and hitting a "ton"... not just "use control" instructions when you push your arms out.
