Redirecting Power

Creating an invisible bridge


On 29th July 2021, I wrote a blog called ‘The Biro Theory‘, discussing various types of energy and what we should look for when trying to tap into and better understand these.


The video below is a clip from class where I looked at how to create (or find) the link between maintaining power in your arm by redirecting the force through your stance, in the blog I mentioned, this would be considered at ‘Level 4’.

This method is a great way of tiring your partner out, and, having you not fall for the same trick.


A phrase I often used while teaching this technique in class, was asking students to:


“Take the strain”


before lifting their front foot (a little like you would in a tug-o-war), in essence, finding the correct weight before lifting the foot and creating a balanced and almost bridge like crossing.


I do hope this makes sense?


Thank you.
