A secret is coming to you all…
Has anyone ever studied a martial arts form that addressed the Chi center of the body?
Anyone know where this is?
I took a Ta’i Chi course from a master instructor, myself knowing nothing, I took him to the golf course and he watched me hit shots
and afterward he bowed to me and called ME his master! lol
As golfers we have the potential to master the true Chi energy center of the body.
in golf we are accelerating the center. Something must be accelerating it. What is this?
I am always amazed at how “in the dark” people are about the importance of acceleration in golf. Most people don’t know what acceleration is… they equate acceleration to speed. If I have one thing to tell a golfer of any level, it is usually a quick lesson in the law of acceleration, and then to move their perceived point of maximum speed much further ahead in the swing than they think. Most golfers believe they are trying to reach maximum speed at the ball. The problem is… that to do this…your perception must be that maximum speed is be reached after the ball… long after the ball really.
Martial arts teaches that a strike must be focused beyond the point of impact… why? sounds all too familiar.
The golf swing is not a conglomeration of static positions. It is a motion, constantly moving and flowing within the discipline of a cohesive body tension. If a golfer is striving for a particular position in their swing, or look, they must work on a position that is past their intended adjustment. All positions, once the swing starts it’s journey, are a product of motions and dynamics.
If I want better impact alignments, I will work feverishly on what is happening at the 4rth parallel, I can swing or hit into that position. Even better yet, nothing will effect my 4rth parallel alignments than what is happening at my finish. Nobody understood this better than Moe Norman. Moe held his impact alignments right to his finish on every shot, every time. It may have looked strange, but the ball never thought so!!!
Does anyone know where this “Chi” center is?
