A short article on the concept of opposing forces in karate
A succint and well composed article. Thanks.
I do teach opposing forces. Running parallel with this is what I call "predicted striking" which I'm sure we all do, but I've put a name to. That is, using methods/forces to more the target in a predicatable direction to facilitate striking. In my world this is not the same as proprioptive striking but a given technique may indeed include opposing forces, predicted striking and proprioceptive striking. The best example of this would using the bent elbow wrist lock to drop the attacker whilst lifting the knee to their jaw.
Egg polishing, anyone?
Thanks for sharing Noah!
