Freedom to be Stable and Mobile
Hey FC Crew,
The physical body is the perfect model for the balance of freedom and order. Too much freedom results in anarchy, too much order – tyranny.
Fitness in Martial Arts is a balance between mobility and stability. Too much mobility and ruptures occur; too much stability and movement becomes impossible. Either pole creates low quality.
The parts of the body which should be free stay free, if the parts that are stable remain stable. If a joint meant for freedom becomes restricted, the body robs freedom from a stable joint.
You need to be the General in charge of these two big babies – Mobility & Stability! You can’t afford to favour one or the other but must look at the whole picture. The body and person as a WHOLE gain greater function when all of the constituent parts are in balance.
