SMJ, read posts 213 and 223. Movements starting in the feet are what you guys are championing. I say it needs to be ongoing and simultaneous in the entire body. BTW, I didn't suggest anything about PMTS, PSIA is who I am referring to with the tipping originating in the feet and how that specific movement descriptor is being misrepresented to include all movements and thus erroneously suggesting all movements must start that low. That simply is not is the case.
Razie, As far as a lesson segment focusing on a particular body zone, it can be any part of the body. The practice of Isolating and developing a new movement pattern there and then incorporate it in the larger picture where the entire body is actively involved is the well worn path to success. so I really question why you seem to think I am suggesting a top first mantra. It is all situational and more options gives us the ability to handle more situations effectively.
JASP You are making another broad generalized statement. Can you describe a specific movement pattern that we have described in detail and specifically why you think we are missing the boat? One example. I bet you can't describe even one in detail that we have advocated. But please describe our complete point of view on a specific thing and then comment how you think we are in err and what YOUR movement pattern would be that allegedly uses more upper body coordination. I don't think you can describe even one thing correctly but these generalizations you keep making are getting tiring.
