What i'm curious about; is how many of you actively teach or incorporate biomechanical references or understanding into training or teaching?


What I mean by biomechnical references is where you will exploit a humans 'natural' weak points in different ways. Such as forcing a knee into excessive extension or the same with an elbow.

Having trouble understanding your question Nidan Melbourne, can you explain what you mean with an example?

Reference points are important:

Do all Martial Arts not do this to an extent? Maybe they don't refer to it as such but most will talk about weak or vital spots to target for each technique.

Reference points is a huge topic for martial artists to understand fully, it needs to be broken down for simple comprehension in to different types, that will improve the ideas in a practical way.

Everything we do well will need references of one kind or another.

Plotting a course of one kind or another needs reference points.

Mapping needs reference points, the human body could be the landscape.

A kata is a prearranged plan of movements that is mapped out with reference points to guide us.
