In General Where is the center? Entry Tools Rate This Entry

If you have taken ukemi for any of the higher ranking black belts, you have hopefully noticed how difficult it is to take their center. Why? Warning: I am about to go off on a tangent.

According to the big bang theory, the universe was created as the result of an explosion but not the same kind of explosion that is commonly thought of. This explosion did not originate from a single point and scientists have observed that the universe is expanding in the same way from any given point in the universe.

So how does this apply to Aikido? We have to keep our center while doing the techniques. Techniques have to come from the center(hara). We have to keep our center, and the center is everywhere!
