I'm a 1st Dan in Tang Soo Do, a very hard style art similar to Tae Kwon Do. Well, I've heard my instructor tell me many times to loosen up and don't be so rigid. I've tried to do just that over the last year or two, but I just can't get it. When I try to use relaxation in all of my muscles except the necessary ones in a technique, I find my technique to be weak. This brings me to my question. Since your art is based on tension and relaxion of muscles until the point of strike, can you give me a few pointers or a link to an article that could help me learn to relax my muscles to increase my speed. I'm faster than most, but i realize that i could be even much faster than i am now if i could just get this down. any help is greatly appreciated.
