comment Martial Arts Weapons for Home Defense?
I feel like this largely replicates the answers above recommending stickwork since there are so many potential improvised weapons around the house that use that technique.

comment What is the biggest force ever produced by an impact from the human body?
@coltonon: To be fair, they asked each of the practitioners to "use their most powerful technique". But yeah, they ought to have either found one technique to be done by all of them or tested multiple techniques to find the one that generates the most force.

comment It makes sense to develop explosive forward movement?
Outside of specific movements, I've also seen recommended standing sprints. Enlist a friend with a whistle. Stand at one end of an open space. When your friend blows the whistle, you have to sprint a short distance. You then rinse and repeat. It encourages you to develop the muscle memory to react automatically with full force.

If you're happy with my answer, can you accept it? :) If a better one comes along, you can always change your acceptance to that one.

You can get a little more information in the paper at ijastnet.com/journals/Vol_3_No_2_February_2013/1.pdf about the levels of impact necessary. They apparently adjust them by sex and weight class.

The piezoelectric sensors are what determines impact. It's possible that they use another method such as the combinations of metals that generate electricity when bent, but that has some mechanical drawbacks. The RFID tags then check to be sure that an appropriate striking surface was at the point of impact. The impression I got about the scandal above was that she had an extra RFID tag on her heel that let her hit with an extra surface, but she still had to make sufficient impact.

I should have left that as a comment... :-P Kendo is not my martial art, but I did a bit of poking around. I'll add what I can.
