2) What are your Stability Principles? 

  • Locate in the Center. 

  • Project down and create a heavy base. 

  • Move with a Unified Body 

3) Define Ground Power. 

  • As the Stability Principles are created, the student allows the energy in the base to flow up and out through the striking limb and into the opponent's body. 

4) Name and define the Striking Principles for the Advanced Green Belt level. 

  • Rooting: Practicing segmented strikes in which the body sets and connects to the floor at the same time contact occurs. 

  • Retraction: Practicing a pull back of one's strikes and kicks immediately after contact is made. The striking limb retracts before the rest of the body rotates into the next strike. 

  • Momentum: Practicing taking an initial step every now and then in a combination to add power from gravity and centrifugal force. 

  • Penetration: Practicing driving each blow deep into the opponent’s body many inches past surface contact. One should feel as if their energy continues on into and through the opponent’s body. 

  • Explosions: Practicing a peak of ones physical potentials and spiritual energies at the moment of impact. 

  • Compensation: Practicing positioning the center towards the force feedback experienced when making contact. 

  • Create the Desired Force: Creating a realistic cause level and then letting that energy imbue the physical form. 

  • Transfer the Force: Unloading all spiritual energy into the opponents body at the moment of impact. 

  • Depth to Maximum Resistance: Being sure to penetrate on the target to the point where you can go no further without injury. 

  • Loose to Potential: Being sure to keep your body loose until maximum resistance, and then at that point, mobilizing to your utmost potential. 

  • Physical/Spiritual Peaking: At the moment the strike hits maximum resistance, the body and spirit peak to a level outside the opponent’s ability to confront thereby overwhelming him. 

  • Total Commitment: A spiritual state whereupon the student strikes with total freedom physically, mentally, and spiritual to their greatest potential. There is a feeling of being ‘all-in’ when making a strike. 

  • No Ego: A spiritual state whereupon the student strikes without a need to impress. 

  • No Fear: A spiritual state where the student strikes their target without any hesitation, doubt, or anxiety. 

5) Name and define the four types of Breathing. 

  • Normal Breathing – The breathing that is done at normal everyday energy levels. 

  • Geared Breath – Coordinating your breathing with the amount of physical energy being used. (If one moves slowly one breaths fully slowly and vice versa) 

  • Kiai – Coordinating a tightening of your breath at the exact moment that contact is made. This helps steel your body against damage, to surprise your opponent, to maximize your physical potentials for more power, and to coordinate the spirit and body to peak at that exact moment of impact. 

  • Rejuvenating – Taking three deep rejuvenating breaths, each held longer than the one before, then blowing out the air. After the three rejuvenating breaths, take 2-3 deep cleansing breaths. If done correctly you should feel close to even.
