More on Random Axial Rotation

As requested by some of you who watched the clip on Youtube, I will explain the Random Axial Rotation a little more.

If you look at the diagram above on the left: lets say, the blue line represent a rotational force around the left Yinqiao Mai Axis, and the red around the right. When the two lines are not interacting, the resulting force vectors follows a simple "S" line, which is quite easy for the opponent to get out of.

Typically, you want the blue line to be passively driven by the opponent's incoming force and directed into a spiral by your rotation; and the red line is a secondary rotation resulting from the first. The result is a series of complex intersecting force lines that pulls in the opponent as well as throwing him out, as expressed by the above diagram on the right.

The rotations should be 3-dimensional. In general, the less you think, the more passive and reactive you are, the more effective. Also, the more skewered the axis and the more random the rotations, the harder it is for the opponent to escape. Do not over complicate your visualization. When you let go and just let it be, the more complex the resultant fore factors become.
