Ever heard of this? It's some sort of systematized way to teach "internal power" body mechanics using principles of posture and body alignment.

For example, take a lot at this webpage explaining the basic ideas:

Whatcha think?

I have never heard of it.

I don't really have any opinion on it. It's not something I feel I need to do or want to do, but I wouldn't discourage someone else from trying it.

I'm suprised you didn't link to one of the youtube clips, Gimp. I think this one is interesting, esp: circa 0.35 onwards

Thanks TEOMOFE.

Bolo, I thought you might be interested because Aunkai is about the martial application of proper posture and body alignment.

Every martial art applies principles of posture and body alignment, but I feel that only a few instructors using those principles in their teaching.

Akuzawa is the real deal. I just have trained with him and he has some very unique body skills, that you do not find in BJJ......
