John Kells-1990 Power Pressing

Here is a clip of John Kells demonstrating and explaining Pressing.

We used to practise this quite a lot. On Fridays we had a Ta Lu class followed by Power.

The pressing postures, front and back foot, were held in a static mode to begin with. This was to develop the posture and was then followed by learning to uproot. The power came from the spine and root, not  from the arms.
