“The following is a high-school-level summation of Newton's 2nd Law which Rick B has somehow adopted as his latest mis-understood "illumination" of Karate concepts involving power generated by speed, and secondarily promoted by Rick W., who claims to get "lost in the math".
Actually guys, you're "lost in the concepts"which is exactly why you should NOT be using them to "support" your"math"....”
Not lost at all.
The illumination is there for those who have the capacity to grasp it.
No misunderstanding here at all.
I know this because I will compare our striking power with anyone’s – will you?
Please read the concept explained again and this time relate them to striking – which is the entire point – nothing missed here.
As for your dismissive comments about “get and book and read”, Rick B (an engineer) ran his misunderstood use of these theories by six other engineers at his work and all agreed his use of the formula will would work for his purpose. (They have, by the way, read a book or two on the subject.)
THE PURPOSE IS TO HIT HARDER.
You Sir are missing the point.
The use of the equation is to explain how to hit harder.
If you have read Rick B’s explanations and have a concept of how to hit then you can easily apply it to how to hit harder.
You missed the point and frankly I don’t think you will ever get it.
And thanks for the shot about the math, I follow the grade school stuff just fine thank you, it is when Rick B (not you) gets past the level being discussed here that he loses me.
I can follow easily how to translate what Rick B says directly into striking and the actual body mechanics used in striking.
I can prove it works on the dojo floor – guess what – that is good enough for me.
You on the other hand have NOT shown how the explanations we have place here do not work when related in the manner as we have to hitting.
You say it is the wrong formula (so, read the purpose again please) Rick B can prove the “use” of the formula will calculate out just as he has done.
We can show on the dojo floor how the explanations translate directly to different manners of striking. We can show on the dojo floor how the use the formula has been put to work just find for a practical end.
FOR A PRACTICAL END.
Again, I have no issue whatsoever entering the conditioning circle with anyone and comparing their striking methodologies based on their theories with our striking methodologies based on our theories.
The proof is in the practical use of theories. We can apply ours.
The bottom-line is that we are not going to agree with you Neil because our purpose is to hit harder and yours is not, so you will never agree with us.
Perhaps you could post a video clip of you striking and show us where we are wrong.
Here is Rick B. misusing his theories:

I have no issue with disagreement HOWEVER:
