Description

Context related guidelines and principles. Principles behind Strategies (a set of choices used to achieve an objective) usually comprised of several tactics. Tactics (the specific methods used when applying strategic choices). Biomechanics e.g. physics, engineering, anatomy and physiology. Fighting psychology e.g. Conflict management, controlling your mental state. History and philosophy e.g. Buddhism, Taoism, Legalism and Confucianism.


Diagonal plane

A biomechanical plane that defines the diagonal inside and outside. Also refered to as the vertical cross. The plane has a relational reference frame and is fixed in relation to your opponent.

Upper horizontal plane

A biomechanical plane that defines above and below the shoulderbelt. The plane has a relational referance farme and is fixed relation to your opponent. The plane is therefore connectiong your shoulderbelt with your opponent shoulderbelt.

Parasagital plane

Two biomechanical planes also referred to as “nipple lines”. They define the sagittal inside and outside. The planes are “body fixed” and moving with your body.

The movement sphere

The space around you that you can reach. Also referred to as the “control zone”. It is the area around our body that your arms and legs can cover.

Mid-horizontal plane

A biomechanical plane that defines above and below the upper body center of mass. The plane has a relational referance farme and is fixed relation to your opponent. The plane is therefore connectiong the hight of your upper body center of mass with the hight of your opponents upper body center of mass.

Low-horizontal plane

A biomechanical plane that defines above and below the center of mass (core). The plane has a relational referance farme and is fied relation to your opponent. The plane is therefore connectiong the hight of your ceter of mass with the hight of your opponent center of mass.

The central line

A line running central in your body from the top of your head (Bai Hui) to the middle of the pelic floor / perineum (Hui Yin). Also referred to as the “midline” or the “vertical axis”.

Relaxation

In Chinese it called Fong Song. It is about getting rid of unnecessary tension in your body while performing techniques.

The core or center of mass

Also referred to as the “Lower Dan Tian”. It is the balance point of the body and from where most energy should originate.

Gravitational force

The point at which the weight of the body can be considered to act. It can also be the force exerted on an object as a result of gravitational pull.

The mid-distance plane

It is also known as the defensive line (Siu Sin). It is a reference of which distance you prefer to work in “preferred distance”.
