I'm doing stuff, throwing guys that are so much bigger than me. When I try to throw them I can't, they wobble a bit and then they throw me.
But then I relax and I dance the technique; that's the only way I can describe it and they go flying. This massive groan comes out of them and I look around and they're in mid air and there's this look of shock in their eyes when they land.
The harder I try the less powerful I am. Then when I decide I'm gods gift to Aikido and that I can throw people just by touching them sure enough they go. Emotional state has so much to do with it.
I don't know how I do this though.
The only thing is I'm crap. Compared to my instructor and my seniors I'm rubbish.
