In General The amazing thing about movement Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Before I started studying, I loved drawing, and the one thing I loved most is the human body. I was (and am) fasinated by it's abilities. I drew tens if not hundereds of human parts in "movement", the knee joint, the elbow, the hip joint... and I remember being frustrated to draw the hands and face until sometimes I just didn't.
I found my fasination grew when I decided to study Physiotherapy, and find it today even more fasinating to see the body's ability to overcome injury.
I'm always having these thoughts about putting together the knowledge I get from Aikido and of Physiotherapy, sometimes it seems so fitting, so intertwining.
No books of human drawings can discribe it, since the are "still" and movement can never be still. it can be broken to stages but it will still not be frozen in time and space.
Movement in Aikido is special, it's natural, but since we long ago forgot about natural things, it isn't natural for us and we need to learn it from basics. The ability to join in movement, to redirect your partner without force is amazing.
Of course here comes the whole idea of "ki", but that's for another day...!
