Yeung wrote:The video provided by you is a good example of ballistic contraction (concentric muscle contraction) to maintain balance and this is a method people use to maintain their balance with brute force, as one can see the recoil effect of muscle contraction against movement. I do not see the relevancy of this video to your statement on space and force.
rojcewiczj wrote:After watching the video on systema ballistic striking... their movement is often exaggerated and thus less effective. In systema they seem to often speak of throwing the hand like a whip. To my understanding, this "whipping" method, only achieves the good of relaxing the limp before the exertion at the last moment. That being said, the motion of throwing the limp like a loose rope is superficial.
