Arm

30 Nov

Coach repeated an interesting perspective on arm positioning this week.

“Imagine your carrying a BIG BARREL,” she blared, arms making the largest circle she could in front of her distended tummy, back bowing under her imaginary burden. “Now, take your arms back,” she said, straightening her body and dropping the cartoon voice. “Drop the back arm — just leave it there, all it can do for you is get a yellow card — now look at your weapon arm. Wide, just outside the shoulder — bent at the elbow — goose-neck the wrist. You’re pointing in, at your opponent.”
