Aha – Jiu Jitsu Lesson Just Improved My Leverage Conception In MCS Golf Swing

I may have mentioned a little while back that I’ve just begun to study Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

While I’m just getting into it (I started at the behest of my good friend The Welshman, who is enthused, to say the least), I’m already getting some valuable insights on the nature of leverage and how important the hips & legs are in producing the same.

Proper Setup & Pivot Eliminate Club Head Path Worries

I’m not talking about the down swing, of course – because if you’re worrying about your club path, then you’ve got other fish to fry.

That’s due to the fact that the down swing takes place faster than you can adjust.

**Sigh** – As With Everything… Right There To Be Seen

Of course, I saw exactly what I figured I would see when I decided to take a look at Mike Austin’s swing down the line with regard to tight or not pivot top position.

Of course… because as with everything that you study intently, the things you need are right there to be seen – you just have to see them.

Why The Tighter Pivot Increases Power

I’ve been going over the mechanics, not content to merely say, “based on what I’ve been researching, the tighter pivot gives you increased power.”

It’s nice to know, but the reasons for this would be helpful to those struggling with issues that they might not think has to do with a pivot that’s less than the tightest they can make it.

It Took A Year To Transform “Feel” To “Real” On The Tight Pivot

I could consider the 2018 season to have been a complete waste of time if I went by my posting from December of last year where I said I’d found my “leverage niche.” using the SwingRite training tool in my off-time.

“Pushing The Down Swing” Is The Secret To The Tighter Pivot

OK, WAX Nation – time to end the impression that there is anything mysterious about what I’ve been discussing this week.

The truth of it is that everything I’ve been looking at and commenting on, is already in the MCS model – I was just getting the “aha” this past week of exactly why the shorter back swing for me is going to be much more powerful than anything I’ve done in the past with my way-past-parallel position at the top.

The Tight Top Position – Remember The Mallet From “MCS Kinesiology?”

I always go back and look at various videos or pictures from previous blog postings or MCS Golf Swing videos.

Just as I suspected, when I went back to the 2015  “Kinesiology Of The MCS Golf Swing” today, I found yet another thing that conforms to my “aha” moment on the “tight top position” on the back pivot.

I Proved That My “Tighter” Pivot Was Equal To/Greater Than… Now I Know How

It’s one thing to say, “a tight pivot will give you as much power or more than one that is less tight or looser,” and it’s another thing to actually prove it, as I did

It’s another kettle of fish altogether however to know why and how the tighter pivot is greater than a looser one, and the reason or mechanism was staring me right in the face!

New MCS 2013 – Things I Was Saying 5+ Yrs Ago

Longtime WAX Nation citizen Lance asked a question yesterday, having re-watched the New MCS videos from back in the spring and summer of 2013 – and that question was, do some slightly differing models of the MCS Golf Swing fit others better?

After re-watching some of the New MCS intro video, “The Formula,” I’d have to say, if you’re following an MCS model from the New MCS to the current one, you really aren’t doing much differently at all.
