Hello and welcome. I BANDELIER Bruno, Professor of net Karate. Today I will talk about my magic stool. So I told you in the video yesterday. I threw you a challenge with a stool. I had a little trouble to find a stool because when I threw you to the challenge, I had none. I thought, it’ll be easy to find, but it was not easy. Anyway, I have a stool now. In the video yesterday, I asked you, when I do a Zuki, a Choku Zuki, I’m up naturally in hachiji Dachi. I Choku Zuki. So my hips vibrate to send the punch. And I asked you, if I do my Choku Zuki sitting on the stool. That is to say there, my hips can not move. They are in support on the stool. I can not use it to send my hips move. So I asked you if I put my Choku Zuki by that, is that the stool will turn out like that or is he going to shoot like that? I did not have many answers. There have been few. Some have said to me that way, others told me backwards. Then we will experience. I do not know if you tried you. So Choku Zuki, right arm. I try to relax the legs. Left arm. So what do we must conclude? One must conclude that, in fact, when you put Choku Zuki, we will not have … these are not the hips that will send the technique. You saw when I put Choku Zuki with the right arm, my Zuki makes me turn the hip in that sense. Basically, this is not Hip there that will trigger the Zuki, but my Zuki, the energy that comes from the stomach. As I explained, the energy comes from here, Hara and this energy then goes back to my hip. It is not hip that advances the Zuki. So let us be clear, the work of the hip is super important in a punch. The work of the hip is super important in the same manner as the work of shoulders. There is one who told me that in fact everything has to work together. There is rotation of the hip, shoulder rotation. Eh yes ! That is true. Everything put together will accelerate and will guide technology in the right direction, but the energy starts here. It is from here that part. In fact it, definitely you get to integrate and work in between, trying to put the punches without moving the hips. It’s good. I do not say that you should not. When you make a Zuki, do it full, but also trying to work without moving and feel the energy starts here. You will see that if you leave them without moving, when you do that, they tend to recede. In fact we, when we will move the hips, we’ll do our usual rotation of Zuki It will be to allow the energy to come to rest on the hip. What happens when I’m on the stool? And when I hit when I send, my arm away from the body that I will generate a reaction. He will have to be based on something so we could leave. For my body can eject my arm, he’ll have that there is a reaction. Besides, you try (it’s a different experience) you will enjoy yourself. You put yourself on a scale, like that on the balance and suddenly you raise your arms. You will see that the needle suddenly, you will lose one or two kilos. When you raise your arms. No, it’s the opposite. The moment you lift your arms, you will gain weight because in order to raise the arms, arms will generate a force there. And you, the same weight you
do that, and suddenly, it draws down. Well here is the same. When you do that, automatically, the power arm to move away. He must be based on something. We need the energy I send comes to bear on something. So it will come to rest there. I step back and I’m standing. I am not an idiot. I’m not going back on purpose when I’m standing. Automatically, I’ll direct my hip and I’ll speed up my energy, accelerate the technical, any vibration, wave hand in the arm Well, I’ll come accelerate. As if, that is energy, and I want to send there. That are my hips, I want to send energy and I do this. In fact, I’m typing at the same time. I just accelerate this technique. Then when I would do a kind Gyaku Zuki Zuki, I’ll turn the hip, already to win the distance because when you put a punch here, there is less force than when placed with the extension, this is normal. So, we will have this additional movement, this thrust in the leg so that, when it reaches the end, the vibration that reaches the end, this vibration, this return (When I hit, I’ll get feedback, reaction) this reaction is coming … I would have shown you. I do with the other arm. This reaction will come to bear here. We must at the same time, when I arrive, the leg is locked to the floor so that … I say always. In fact, we must consider that the ground it is here. The energy from there and it must come to rely on the basin. The pelvis, it must be in direct contact with the ground. At the moment of impact, the pelvis, it must be related to the ground. That does not mean that the leg should be hyper tense. That means she should be locked so that the energy, it is connected directly and hand and returns to start there. Okay ! In fact, the energy starts here. There is a vibration, a wave that rises up to send the shot, with the arm, whatever, up to send instantly. And at the same time down. So you’re going to incur progressively advance your arm, your leg is stretched And at the same time, knock. So of course the leg thrust will accelerate and will add to the power of shock. Besides, I had called my article on Oi Zuki, I had put “the power of both legs in a punch” because it uses both legs, one pushes on both legs, but the punch itself, he leaves the basin, by which presses on the pelvis. The basin, of course if the basin, it accelerates moving, we will have more strength, but that’s all. The energy, even when it goes from there. I was also told, the energy from the ground. So none. I’ll put a lot of people to back me but when I see my carpet. I’m looking. I have no energy in it. The energy, it comes from me. When I come to rely on the carpet, the carpet back me energy. The carpet, in itself it has no energy. If I take my shoe. I’m asking the carpet up, it does not stand alone. By cons, actually, when I grow. When I shoot in the legs, that energy, she leaves. Similarly, MEM Choku Zuki, when the energy I do it from there. I go down and I just rely on the basin. The basin directly to the floor, not on one leg or the other, but both at the same time. They told me that when we do Choku Zuki, I was told, it grows on the back heel. They told me, when you’re like that, you push once here, once there and once here. That is not good. This is often what we see because when asked the novice: “help yourself to your hips!” Beginners, this is normal. When I tell beginners often we made the mistake a long time. Often we do this. We will really turn the hips and suddenly you no longer feel the hara. The hips are helpful, but be careful. Must be disconnected to learn to work the stomach and working without hips. The coup, he went belly and not the hips. I’ll show you another example. I was told to try as weightless. So I will try to grow the guy there. It is a bit heavy because it is a little over 100 kilos. Indeed. It is a little more hefty than me, let’s say. So I’ll try to put me in weightlessness. So we, we do not work at NASA, it will not be easy. But I’ll just try jumping in the air. I had to talk about more in a comment. Jumping in the air … When it goes down, it is weightless. I’m not resting on the ground. If I do that, when I go down, I do not have support on the ground. Is when I hit, did it hurt? If I hit. I ride. I go down. I ride. I go down. Although I do not have a force being on the ground, I still hit. Each time, look, I come back. This, I show you to show where I land. To show you that I did not throw myself on him. I am not using the weight of my body to go on it. I would come back every time in the same place. I’m here. I start there. I jump
and knock. I jump and knock. I jump and knock. I jump and knock. I return to the same place. I have not done… I do not know, I can not
do it. I did not throw it. It was the same case as with kicks. If I gave a kick jumping, I also energy since Energy comes from there and will sway me in my hip Mae Geri. Okay ! So, legs and hips are super important, but they serve as a support. They provide support and guidance. They will use that energy that is created here is well oriented and is resting. Another example to return to the Choku Zuki. As I was told, you must press a blow on one side and a phone on the other. How do we do if we Morote Zuki? If I press the two together over there, while I do not want to leave, I want to stay put. I just want the energy that is here. I’ll pass it there. So the energy is there, I just rely on my pelvis vertically. My pelvis down, force down in both legs. The basin is flat. Anteversion not like that. It is not beyond the buttocks; neither too retroverted. It must be flat. Here. A flat and locked at the time of the strike. And then I hit my two legs. The energy share on both feet at the same time and knock. If you look good, I do not make it back and I do not do that. Okay ! I just hit so that energy … So it’s not always easy. Train yourself to! I just hit so that the energy return of the great Bob then, back me vertically downwards. Okay ! The energy from there and knock. Look… By the time I hit the energy I in Choku Zuki or position like that, it’s the same. There, when I hit, it should not go forward. Do not accentuate forward. The energy goes from there. That, it just serves as my base. And I just hit. If you look good, knock. There, my feet are used as support. If I remove my hand, I do not fall forward. So I’m not like that. Because, if I’m like this, when I take the hand I fall, but I hit remaining always me in my position. That is to say that the energy … then it is not easy to do at idle because he is strong when the same guy. I tell you, he must do 110 kilos the base. So when I push there, the energy, I’ll send it directly on my legs together, perhaps a bit more on the back heel, but the leg is still ahead. It’s really about the two front legs. To return to our sheep, or rather our stool. Remember the stool! Made. Train yourself because it looks nothing. You will progress in your Zuki. Well, in causing you to not to use the hips. You will see that after, you will use more hip because you tend to want to get energy from your hips while your hips just used to direct energy. But when you do not know where it comes from. It is not easy. It’s like if you have a tennis racket and you type in a vacuum, but you do not know where the ball. It’s not good. There, the ball is here. And checking out, the ball must … There, when I put a punch, it must go there. But from there, she wants to build there. Well, you imagine that your hips are the tennis racket, I send. So, you train to do this and do not strike with the arm; to hit with your guts, with the belly? the Japanese call Hara. Then I was told that I was light years to know the Hara. If you like, I do not care. Finally, it’s not that I care,
but many people say what they want. The important thing is what I feel. After… Look ! That, train yourself to do it and to hit. Okay. It’s not because I’m on the stool I may be a little close Gugusse there, but it’s not because I’m on the stool I have no strength in my arms. When I hit, I have the arm strength. Admittedly, I have less, but I have more than if I am using that arm. If I am using that arm. It’s not good. You really have to come out of your guts, it’s kind of your guts. You will see that causing you, do it on a stool. If you do not have stool, do it on a table. As I tell you. You put the legs in the air. You are in support. There is strength. It rests on there. Okay ! But at least you break the support or part orientation or acceleration of technology technical and energy purely party hand and flies away. Okay. There I releases energy. OK So do you train! Do it and do it often! I did an internship there are three-four years, I think or two-three, I do not know Sensei Johny Ganja. He told us to do it on a wall. This is not bad too. You put against a wall. Straight, feet together, or I do not know if it was hachiji Dachi or feet together. Anyway, like that. You train the arm straight out from there to the energy of the belly without going to the wall and not from behind. It allows you to train that energy happens horizontally (Since when I pushed him, he sends me energy horizontally) This energy then, I extend vertically. Train yourself away from the guts and you do it against a wall. You act as if you push the wall, but it’s not really, I do not push. From there, knock. Suddenly, I hit. So we do not hit as hard as if it is far, but you have to feel it comes from there. It is a vibration that starts from there, going up and down is all right and not a blow back. A blow to a stroke at a
leg, hit on the other. You must feel that … I hit with the right arm, I have both legs simultaneously. I hit there, you have to feel the same. Choku Zuki, it is not once on one leg, once on the other. Choku Zuki, I hit both at the same time. I just resting on the feet. Okay. Listen, I hope you enjoyed this video. I hope I have not confused you too much mind. I know it’s not always easy when it comes to hip, Hara because it often goes contrary what we think or what we believe is right. I do not pretend to have the truth. Yes, there are certainly experts who come, who will explain on video: no, it’s not like, it’s not like that. Here. I’ll let you debate. I hope you will continue to struggle. See you soon on karate-blog.net and karate3G. It was Bruno BANDELIER. Bye.
