Speed starts in the mind and in the nerves. To be fast your nervous system needs to tell your body to act in a specific way and flicking this switch is the first step in the ElasticBody training. We use techniques to train action and reaction cycles alongside elastic tissue development so that the body will natural 'pop' when its needed. This work changes the tissues of the connected structure so that they have high volumes of rebound and elastic potential.
The ElasticBody is achieved when the practitioner has developed their nervous system and tissue such that it is able to fire rapidly and utilize their tissues natural elasticity. The ElasticBody Attribute is closely linked with rebound forces, stretch shortening cycle, elastic recoil and action and reaction response.
When the body maintains a natural elasticity is it better prepared to deal with the large forces that can be generated during martial exchange. Elastic body training has a ‘protective’ function because joints become wrapped by strong but flexible tissues. When a hard strike misses its target or a joint lock is applied the elasticity helps to absorb some of the forces that would usually damage the joint. ElasticBody training will also help someone to rehabilitate injured tissue towards the end of their recovery phase, restoring the power and recoil and allowing them to function properly once more.
Every striker wants that ‘pop’ in their hits, and to be able to take advantage of openings when they occur. ElasticBody training will give you the snap in your strikes that only comes from elastic structures being used efficiently. Moreover, it will give you the agility to rapidly change direction and apply complex footwork to the martial exchange. To the grappler the ability to go from slow steady pressure, to explosive motion is a great advantage. The instant acceleration found in the 'ElasticBody' will help you to achieve this. Learn to fire when you need too, and explode in every movement.
Elastic body training utilizes ‘recoil’ and ‘rebounding’ to put a stretch into the muscle/fascia unit that then snaps back to its original position. Over time this consistent work will put a type of strong elasticity into the tissues. Additionally we train the action reaction cycle with innovative movement games that force the practitioners to move quickly ans solve problems on the fly.
