Although thrust technique is normally performed in straight lines, there are no straight lines in the body, and momentum inevitably induces some curving aspect to the force. This may help to find the optimum direction for any given thrust. MINIMAL LEVER AND THRUST Minimal lever and thrust can be further divided into two broad subdivisions.
