Hi JH. What may help some is a martial art principle and also explains Lee’s swinging concept around your pinky toes. Without a club take your hand palm down and push it towards your left ankle while in your stance. Your weight transfers automatically. You also turn properly. Lee releases around his pinky toes which automatically with a boxing pivot gets the weight in the proper areas automatically. Small hand arc. Wide clubhead arc. When a martial artist strikes all they then do is extend the arms. Also without thoughts. Immense power. As DaVinci evolves Lee will steer you to this arm extension as well I believe. I hope this makes sense. If you try the palm down exercise I think it will clarify my thought. Thanks JH for the work. I’m snowed in and sub zero. Your vids are a blessing.
I understand your what you are referring to here relative to a Martial arts body component delivery process when delivered with strike intent.. I have trained in the martial arts for over 45 years …. ..my daughter was a 3rd Dan red logo in Zen Do Kai… she was the highest ranked female in the country at one stage .
I also have been involved in the dynamics study of the delivery processes of limb strike/delivery efficiency’/inefficiencies in martial arts.
In a martial arts for example a vertical spiraling down palm strike the energy source actually initiates/emanates from the extremity of the toes up through the body to the extremity of the finger tips…like the escape route of a lightning strike of its energy force after the strike.
In a martial arts hand/arm strike application it may look like the hand/arm is is primarily conducting the great majority of the strike effect and the body is playing a fairly insignificant role… that is a visual perception only… the force emanated from the opposite extremity of the delivery force impact point… which Lee actually applies in his swing.
There are a lot of very complex dynamics in play in Lee’s swing mechanics …I certainly do not understand them as Lee does at this point in time.
JH, thanks for spending that much time on my particular issue of hitting fat. One other thing I notice that’s different between my swing and yours is that I don’t have my right leg nearly as straight as you do. Your right knee almost looks locked through most of the back swing and part of the downswing. I have much more knee bend and it’s possible I hit fat partly due to my right side collapsing downward a little in the downswing. Are you deliberately posting up on the right leg with it straight as long as possible?
Also, You may need a catchy acronym for this swing in case Tom Hanks balks at you using “The Davinci Code” . How about “S.W.I.S.H” for Step up, Waddle In, and Shove it 😉
I dont want to move laterally in any direction with the back swing or forward swing which is why I set my trail leg as a support system so strongly…. having to much bend in the trail knee can cause some collapse if you are not super diligent with the structure.
There certainly has to be some reference to ‘Shove’ somewhere in the description of the swing mechanics.
Well explained. You have the magic move , this helps to get the force behind you. Wish you all the very best.
I hope some of the ‘Magic’ filters into the swings of others who use this process… I really believe once mastered it will stay with you and require little maintenance.
I am struggling with with the swing my friends say i am to t tied up with my right elbow but I am going to keep trying I like your deminstrations keep it up Thanks Gary
Ok you should be trying to keep the trail arm connected to around the upper hip are so you have to fire the trail side ‘out’ at the ball to get the trail hand/arm to the ball … dont be afraid to fire the trail shoulder out to the ball… as long as you have stayed centered and over your lead vertical axis on the back swing you will have created enough torque to start get the lead side going first on the down swing which means you can fire as hard as you like with the trail shoulder/arm/hand .
At the end of the day you still have to get your trail side rotating through the ball at impact and beyond , I think you are not getting your trail side moving aggressively enough to the ball whilst maintaining the connection of the trail arm.
If you think about it… the only way you can get the connected arm to the ball is to fire the anchor point … and that is best done by just firing the trail shoulder/hip after you have started the downswing from the lead side.
hi jh. have tried your swing on the golf course today , Chipping and iorns I hit quite good but l am struggling using the swing with th driver it seams l seam to have a problem not using a full swing can you help explain what might be going wrong . keith.
The Full swing needs some more in depth explanation which I will go over in the next videos… some important info in the latest video today… what specifically was happening in the full swing that was causing problems for you.
Isnt this Darrell Klassen? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5e0Ne0NwOs
Hi Angela, Davinci Code is I think way different from anything Big Darrell teaches … he does have an element of driving back into his upper body to get his club head out to his ‘Power Point’ position but that’s the only snippet of semblance the mechanics have. I like Big Darrell’s stuff and he gets good results for players at his clinics apparently. cheers JH
Well i’ve tried him for 2 years and he has basically done my head in with contradictions and has never answered my questions – after spending 100s of $. The chopping, hitting action is the same and the powerpoint. I am 100% with you. I spend zero, get great information and a RESPONSE in one day, how good is that? Thank you, i love your enthusiasm and analysis
Happy to give any help I can … any knowledge I have and have developed is of no real value if it cannot be shared with those who can benefit from it. cheers JH
