Fair enough. I find it confusing to use the same term for two different concepts. If the centerline is the line between you and your opponent, then what do you call the line that bifurcates your own body? If your punches do not travel down that line how do you chain punch? If your hand techniques do not end on that line what of structure?Again, I distinguish these two concepts as center and central. Centerline is your center, central is the direct line to the opponents center.
---No problem. I just think that can get confusing.
What isn't true? That WC tends not to execute like boxing? If you aren't at least squaring up at the moment of attack I'm not sure you can call it WC. Maybe WC boxing, as to get any power like that would require a boxing power engine.
---I can get lots of power in a strike when I pivot and end up with my body "cocked 45" in relation to the opponent. No real need to bring the boxing engine into it. Why do you think your shoulders have to be square to the opponent to generate power....or to consider it Wing Chun?
Again, I am not talking about aligning with the opponents center. When you shift and punch the punch could very well end up travelling diagonally in relation to your opponent, but still end on your own center where it's strongest.
I wasn't aware there were strains of WC that didn't use centerline theory.
