one fast and dirty way would be to take, say the upper arm control in fk, and have its parent (probably a null group) orient constrained to a locator that is in world space 000. Then, just key that constraint on and off...when on, the control will be isolated. When off, it will move as it should in FK. Or some variation there in. I know the specifics aren't accurate probably on this, but it'll give you an idea...
