Hey guys, So I recently posted here on a topic regarding wing chun and shotokan cross-training, but it developed into an interesting discussion on power generation. i'd like to continue/focus that discussion here if you'd all ablige.
More specifically, I'd like to pick all your brains about the idea of kinetic linkage in general (mostly at the moment of impact) and generating a "power loop" that goes from the target- instantainously back to the floor- then back to the target. Rinse and repeat endlessly til preassure is either lost downwards, forwards (losing contact w/target), or backwards (losing rear-leg/ground connection)
Using gyaku-zuki as an example, The idea is that power is generated through a multitude of means (kime, stance, rotation, muscle expansion, hikite, bodyweight shifting, etc..), but unlike a boxer, this power is continually fed to itself at the moment of impact through internal connections from the target-through the body- and into the floor (kinetic linkeage). Same as power towards the target, but from the target side. A la "newtons thrid law of motion".
How do we feel about the power loop in general (besides it being difiult to test/use) in the confines of power generation/delivery. I'm purely asking about delivery of force, not about realistic usability.
I personally feel like if applicable, it can be immensely powerful, and really give the target side the feeling like your techqniue is really "penetrating". However, this is only from a grounded position. Being able to pull this off while sliding makes this much harder, as you'd need to shift your back foot in and ground it by the time the impact has rippled through your body and would need the floor connection to successfully redirect power back into the target. Of course the better internal connection you can make the faster and more purely that impact travels through your body, making it even harder if you're connecting well.
I know it's a long post, but wanted to ask the question with detail. So for clarity:
1. Do you feel that a "power loop" is obtainable and useable?
2. (i know i didnt write much on this but) Do you feel other means of generating power (like a boxer, or in forms of kung fu/other styles) you can generate power more effectively without causing yourself bodily harm?
