Try this and see what results you get.

1. Try a finger or wristlock while standing on pavement or concrete
2. Try the same application but this time stand on grass and see the result

You should note a significant enhancement in the effectiveness of the technique.

In the simplest terms your connection to mother earth via Kidney 1
You draw Qi from earth via this point

Ok, assuming this works in the first place and assuming it works because the guy doing the lock "channels chi from the earth" or whatever... shouldn't the guy who is being the "victim" of the lock be able to do the same thing, thus cancelling out the other guys chi stuff?

The Chinese do not distinguish between the spiritual and psychological, they say if an army fights in its own land if fights harder. In sports we have the home field advantage, could it be that this is a psychological result and we feel stronger and more refreshed in grass than on pavement?
Further have any of you experienced this when you were in school, on a normal school day it is really hard to get up and out of bed but if there is a field trip or on a Saturday it is really easy to get up. More Chi or psychology?

Maybe my fellow forumites can help me out here... I want to do an experiment, but I don't have the resources. Sharon, maybe you and your husband can help here, if you get a chance.

Here's the protocol:

Try kote-gaeshi, nikajo, or another of your favorite wrist locks under the following conditions:

1. Both locker and lockee on pavement.
2. Both locker and lockee on grass.
3. Locker on pavement, lockee on grass.
4. Locker on grass, lockee on pavement.

I have a theory, but I don't want to ruin the experiment by stating it. For the experiment to remain valid there shouldn't be much of an elevation difference between the pavement and grass. Anyone who's interested please give it a shot and report in, but try to be as objective as possible.

I will tell you the theory after the results come in, even if the results don't support it-- I've been wrong before.

Tried it with my friend. It worked like you said. Weird? Has anyone got any other explanations why this might work? Ones not Ki related as well, try to eliminate all the obvious first(if there are any obvious)

P.S Good post York Karate

It is a good post and a good experiment. I will try and answer why I think that it works later.

BTW - York Karate (Sensei Gordon Travers) has passed on. Terrible loss it was.
