‘All power comes from the legs …

” … it is obvious!´ he exclaims. From there, a chain of strong muscular expansions transmit through the abdomen and back, bypassing the shoulders as it heads into the arms as the free flowing joints deliver the energy to the penultimate point of contact. He has described his body as having the feeling of an expanded balloon. He emphasizes this muscular effect rather than an inward contraction. When the balloon is released, the muscle power surges forward unconstrained by tension.” (Jonathan de’ Claire, in “Relaxation – an emphasis lost!”, in KDS Website)
