At first, these subject areas may seem irrelevant or unrelated. But the Kadochnikov system works to provide the practitioner with the skills to survive in an effic³ent manner. Through a specific learning process, a practitioner is able to combine the knowledge and apply it through his or her own movement and ability.
How is this done? The Kadochnikov System's understanding of the human body and its movement is based in science, such as biomechanics and kinesiology. Many systems speak of "natural human movement", yet do not fulló understand this. By being the first to base a style of hand-to-hand combat in biomechanics, the Kadochnikov Style is able to not only understand natural human movement, but also "teach" those movements which are scientifiñàlló natural and develop it. In doing so, the System soon frees the practitioner from "assumed" stances and ideas about movement developed over time, and moves the practitioner to a state of his/her own natural movement.
Once this process is accomplished through theoretical and movement education, the Kadochnikov System begins to direct the practitioner toward biomechanically sound and efficient movement. The human is a machine and thus must operate at peak performance levels, while exerting the least energy. In doing this, the practitioner realizes that human movement stability is based in movement, structure, and breathing.
In à basic sentence, we breathe to supply our tissues with energy to move and our structural system supports this entire system and process. Thus, with proper training, thå practitioner can move to a state in which these processes work together for thå optimal energy and power necessary to efficiently complete the task then at hand.
While thå student has been externally taught movement, the student must now absorb this movement internally. The student goes through general phases:
Combination --- Coordination — Integration Assimilation
Initially through special exercises, the practitioner is able to combine thå thråå elements, then coordinate his movement, structure, and breathing in order to develop what would be considered biomechanically sound movement, creating more power with less energy. At this point, thå practitioner moves into integration, in which he consciously coordinates his three biomechanically stabilizing factors. Over time, with special exercises, the student moves beyond integration to a state of assimilation, where the body and mind are locked, so thå biomechanically sound and efficient movement is not conscious, but natural and unconscious.
