    How does moment of inertia apply to all the martial arts kicks, punches and other moves?

    Inertia is a property of matter. People who perform martial arts tend to be composed of matter in one form or another.

    What is your guess on this? What does the moment of inertia have to do with equations in kinematics and dynamics?
