In General Heart to heart communication Entry Tools Rate This Entry

At the beginning and end of class, Sensei McAuley always looks into his students eyes before he makes his bow, to end or start class.
He tells us this is from his teacher (Asoh Sensei) and is a form of communication from the heart.

I had a similar experience of this at the weekend on the Uk Shinwakai course, where a couple of visiting Japanese students were training, there were obvious verbal communication problems, although the language barrier became a non-issue during the training, i received the technique (was thrown) the technique was good i rose and smiled, she smiled, after a while we changed roles, we could both 'feel' the techniques work and also when they didn't, we worked together to correct the technique........not a word was spoken
Heart to heart communication, what a wonderful art O'sensei left us.
