OK, if you were in class for the past two weeks you got a deep understanding to my 5 steps to better Aikido, if you couldn't make it, it's OK, because I'm in the process to writting a book about it.

This week we are focusing on Tenkan. So, let's call it Better Aikido through Tenkan. That's going to be the title to my next book.

Tenkan.......Step in, pivit, Step back all while you are turning.

Three basic movements to my Aikido - Omote, Ura and Tenkan.

I remember in Japan, how often people would ask me, how do you do it? How can I do this technique? Which hand goes where? Where am I supposed to move my feet.

I usually always tried to keep silent and push them by attacking a bit harder.

Today, I find my self having to teach, when all I want to do is learn and become better.

I want to become the best I could ever be.....and the only way to get there is to have honest sincere training partners. People that will push me further and further the same way I would keep quite and push my fellow students a bit harder.
