    Default POM - Angle of Incidence

    Angle of Incidence -

    Refers to the perpendicular angle of a strike on its target. This angle will give the greatest effect.


    Be careful what you say, some may take it the wrong way.

    However, when dealing with human anatomy, how is the "Angle of Incidence" determined for "greatest effect?"

    The UKF answer would be to aim for the spine, but I was taught that you are always hitting some part of an organ at a 90% angle, if you hit it; so, I was just using a vague center line idea, but have since been corrected to stop, think about it, and choose actual targets. I'm curious about what you have to say on this.

    My first question would be what's the greatest(desired) effect? Then based on the target, we're in the "it depends" phase.

    Well sir, the biggest thing from a Martial Science approach is understanding and deciphering "Martial Posture Applications." Everything we do begins and ends with posture first and foremost. When striking any target you have to consider what the actual target is, as well as the posture presented to you at the anticipated moment of contact. What may "appear" to be an angle of incidence on the surface may not be in actuality as subcutaneous positions of organs, and assorted soft tissue, along with bones change characteristics constantly predicated on the posture of the human frame, which also include weight distribution.

    Simplistically, Angle of Incidence is a no-brainer. In reality, without the ability to read, anticipate, understand, decipher, and execute in a manner to achieve the goal, it is only a lofty concept worthy of conversation to get the ball rolling. Additionally, Angle of Incidence is not always the most effective or efficient way to strike or interact with some aspects of the anatomy, depending upon what the goal of execution is and the method needed to achieve it sir.

    You should at least let me write it before you throw in the wrench.
