The Power of Bodyweight

We were talking a lot this week about using the hips in all our striking techniques.  You notice some people hit hard with just their arms.  But even these guys could utilize the untapped power of their hips, or what I always call the “powerhouse”.  Using your hips is efficient, too.  More power, less work!  In this YouTube clip, Peter Consterdine displays amazing skill in using his powerhouse.  He calls it the “double hip”.  Every time I watch this, I am completely blown away.  Check out the way he effortlessly swivels around and beats the tar out of the pad!  🙂
