List and explain the theory of power (audio)

Reaction Force:  For every action (force) there is an equal and opposite reaction (Newton’s third law). Another reaction force is your own. A punch with the right fist is aided by pulling back the left fist to the hip

Concentration: The smaller the focal point of youer weapon the more force there will be on a given target.

Equilibrium: To have maximum power you must maintain your balance. Without balance, your power can easily be diverted. The center of balance must be on a staight line midway between the legs.

Breath Control: Controlled breathing is important for a number of reasons. It protects the body against attack and creates more power in your technique by tightening your muscles. Breath can be turned into a yell to bolster your courage and startle your apponent. It can also improve your stamina and speed.

Mass: Use sine wave and hip jerk to increase power. (the moer mass you have the more power you should be able to generate).

Speed: Speed is the most essential factor to create power.
