3 exercises to develop the dynamic equilibrium

After understanding what is the dynamic equilibrium, here we have 3 exercises that can help us to develop it (10 minutes each):

First exercise (do not drop down)

  • Let’s find a place away from potential obstacles
  • The starting position is standing (we can not move our feet)
  • Let us fall in random directions (right, left, forward, etc.)
  • Let’s recover our balance a moment before we fall to the ground
  • We can not lean on nothing
  • Let’s try to balance our body making extensive use of the weight of the head
  • Let us help with the whole body (arms, shoulders, legs, etc.)
  • Let’s perform free movements (vertical, horizontal, etc..) to understand what are the most effective
  • As we become more good we can always be more near to the ground
  • A further step is to perform the exercise with closed eyes

Second exercise (push the wall)

  • Let’s put (one at a time) our feet to a wall and let’s push (as throwing it away)
  • Let’s simulate various types of kicks at different heights
  • Let’s just hard push but without violence (no explosive strength)
  • Let’s kick with our right leg, let’s rotate on ourselves, left kick, rotate and so on
  • The goal is to give a big push (as we truly want to move the wall) without losing balance
  • We can move freely (even jump), the important thing is to stay balanced
  • The exercise has to be performed also in combination (or only) with hands

Third exercise (push the door)

  • Let’s put a door nearly to be closed (no lock)
  • Let’s lean on the door like it is closed, and like it is able to support us
  • When the door moves we have to maintain our thrust to almost fall
  • We have to recover the balance before truly fall down
  • It ‘s important to do not dissipate energy until we’re really falling
  • To do not fall we must transform the support thrust in a violent pressure
  • While we recover the balance our body must be projected backward and not forward
  • If we are performing the exercise correctly the door should violently clash with the wall (possibly let’s put a protection to do not damage the door)

The third exercise is very important because it help us to understand a big part of a very effective 6DKF fighting technique (which we will discuss shortly).
