Motion is the most pervasive characteristic of the universe. Everything in the universe moves. Even space itself is not at rest, expanding as it is. It's as though the universe is taking a large breath.
Aikido is the study of bodies in motion relative to one another. Motion is at the heart of Aikido training.
My technique flows naturally from my movement in relation to uke. During randori I never ‘think ahead' and try to choreograph my techniques, I simply move and let the technique happen itself as a result of my interaction with uke.
