Reaction Force A
A jet engine is pushed by the speed of the exhaust gases or action-reaction.
Reaction Force B
Two cars will crash head on or summation of forces.
The smaller the striking surface of the attacking tool, the greater the penetration, giving the same amount of energy.
Loss of balance and the elevation of the center of balance will reduce the amount of energy delivered to a target.
Breath Control A
Timing the contraction of the muscle groups with exhalation delivering and amplifying the power.
Breath Control B
By expelling air at each movement, we avoid the loss of energy.
Breath Control C
Ki-yap can unnerve an opponent.
Breath Control D
Ki-yap stiffens the body at the right moment to help withstand a blow.
Body weight adds to the delivered energy, provided all elements of the theory of power are observed.
The acceleration of the fist or foot does not damage a target. It is the sudden stop that occurs when the fist hits its target that imparts energy. Mass and time to target are crucial.
Speed & Reflex
Any technique delivered faster than an opponent’s reaction time will strike its target without being blocked.
Speed & Strength
Application of plyometric principles (strength and speed training) greatly enhances the energy delivered to a target.
