I believe the mass of the body would outweigh the mass of the arm. But studies could be in order for that. After all, it is feasible for an arm to weigh 200 lbs and a body to weigh 160 lbs. Wait, no it's not.
So you're saying a returning punch finds it easier to rebound itself off your own body than to come to a stop when your elbow relaxes leaving the fist somewhere out to the side or infront. That's crazy. Some Newton **** Spock.
By the way, I SLAP, I admit it.
I'm off to watch that video ... somehow I suspect my slapping isn't much like what they are doing ... but I haven't watched it yet. Back soon.
Edit : Oh my goodness, there isn't a video to watch!
Am I going to have to search 'tatum slapping kenpo' or something?
Links please draygin.
