+1. I would emphasis being relaxed as this puts more elasticity into impacts thus dissipating kinetic energy instead of absorbing it into the body. You breathe point is excellent since it forces one's body to relax.

It is called oshi taoshi in Shodookan which translates as elbow push down. There are countless applications of that one technique.

An addendum to the question would be how to evaluate a potential school. This would be a question in its own right, possibly a duplicate, but certainly worth asking -- if no duplicate can be found...
