Re: Re: Re: Re: Purely Rotational
>>> From what I have seen on final arc 2, Jack and John Elliott go into quite a bit of detail about how the player needs to have "cushion"/flex in the front leg and not extend the leg prematurely. Jack theoretically discusses the front hip as axis at batspped (I think, looking forward to search feature).Also they notice the relation between the front leg flex and the lead elbow staying up in the swing plane, all extrememly important rotational; details. <<<
You stated, “. Jack theoretically discusses the front hip as axis at batspped.” – To clarify Batspeed’s lower-body mechanics, I would point out that I may have discussed mechanics (like “back to center”) where a posted front-hip is the axis the hips rotate around. However, that is not the lower-body mechanics taught in Final Arc II.
Rather than having the front-hip posted, we teach that the rotation and extension of a flexed lead-leg rotates the front-hip rearward as the back-hip is being rotated forward. That results in rotation around a stationary axis whereas rotating the back-hip around a posted front-hip means the axis moves “back to center” during rotation.
