    Default Spring in your step

    'Do you believe that there is such a thing as "spring in your step" and how would you define it?

    We call it launch, and the trick is not to lag with your upper body.

    I would say it is stepping properly. Consider, that overweight people have to step around their thighs; so, that would be a step without spring.

    And finally, so as not to leave anything out, "Spring in your step" is an attitude, that shows, physically.

    I believe it is an actual physical condition as for a time I had lost my "spring" and have just recently got it back. I think that their are mental processes that are part of the process aside from the physical. I started this post to see if others have went through this same experience.

    Mostly just pushing off with your feet and lifting your knees.

    Hey kenpo brothers and sisters !
    I got my spring back !
    It took 6 months of ongoing chi kung training along with adjustments in diabetes medicine.
    It can be done if one perseveres in training. I'm living proof !
