The Basics
 
Hi everyone,

So... In twenty-five words or less:

What would you consider to be "The Basics" in your own approach to aikido?

Hi all,

The basics we would practice on in the Yoshinkai are:

1.)Tai no henkou ichi

2.)Tai no henkou ni

3.)Hiriki no yousei ichi

4.)Hiriki no yousei ni

5.)Shumatsu dosa ichi

6.)Shumatsu dosa ni

Also we focus on kamae:

1.)Migi hanmi no kamae

2.)Hidari hanmi no kamae

These are the basic movements that we practice on continuously. These basic movements can be found in all aikido movements. These movements really help to build a strong foundation focusing on power, balance, kuzushi, etc. Its pretty cool stuff.

Kung Fu Liane 03-21-2003 08:13 AM

in the chinese arts the answer would be feet, because if the feet are wrong, how can the rest of the body be right? and from what i've seen, aikido is no different

Mark Jakabcsin 03-21-2003 08:49 AM

Posture, balance, control

plus, commitment, community and enjoyment.

Ali B 03-21-2003 10:44 AM

Completely relax

Think of your one point

Extend your mind

Have a light posture

Love and light

Ali

John Boswell 03-21-2003 12:29 PM

Relax

Breath

Percieve the attack

Panic because I just went blank

Hurry up and catch up

Next!

Oh ya: Center, Balance, Extension and Execute

1) Kamai

2) Kihon Dosa

These are the basics - the foundations - on which you build technique, Jiyu Waza (like randori, if you are unfamiliar), Henka Waza, etc.

Michael Owen 03-22-2003 03:32 AM

Getting good directions to the dojo. :freaky:

DGLinden 03-22-2003 11:55 AM

Aikido is simply intercepting an attacker, unbalancing him, and disolving his energy flow. Some is technique, most is understanding movement and physiology; the rest, experience.

Dennis Hooker 03-23-2003 08:38 AM

Stay alive

j0nharris 03-23-2003 10:29 AM

Relaxing

No muscle

Blend with your partner(s)

Always have a smile after Sensei repeatedly compresses the mat with your body :rolleyes:
