Aarrghh!! - it's sometimes so difficult to phrase things to say exactly what you mean. Judo isn't a striking art and therefore the concept of adding the bodies kinetics energy into a punch doesn't apply in the same way.
Maybe I'm just wrong :?

Well, not "officially" - but some of the arm and leg thrusts used during some of the throws sure work like strikes, e.g. the rising arm drive in, say, tsuri-komi-goshi manages to clock you in the jaw on the way up, or the leg doing side snap kick in hane-goshi or in uchi-mata the back kick is a little too central - been there, got that t-shirt :) The limbs are powered from the body core whether they are in air or attached to a piece of clothing.

When I read this my first thought was that the original author was just talking about the kinetic energy accrued whilst stepping forward from say left front stance to right front stance, being transferred into the striking fist which hit the target just before the leading foot hit ground. Hit after the foot has landed and you lose some of that kinetic energy. The judo scenario (perhaps more akido) that first came to mind was the situation when one redirects the momentum of an incoming attack and uses it to displace your opponent. After a little more thought it's pretty obvious that just stepping over to throw an opponent is generating kinetic energy to utilise as part of the throw. I must confess to an almost complete absence of practical knowledge of judo. The closest I've have to practical experience of it, is being dumped on my butt outside a lift by a girl friend (who had trained) after I was a little too cheeky to her. I distinctly remember the feeling of chagrin watching the lift doors close from my position on the floor and the smug look on her face. :oops:

This kind of ignores what you can do with the core musculature and close quarter combat doesn't really give much opportunity to make use of kinetic energy derived from movement of the whole body.

Tell that to the judo folks :)


And the one-inch-punch exponents!
