Re: Half a Tatami

Hi, nicely put Niall.

Loved the 'D' shape explanation.So simple.

The tatami example made me smile and reminded of a saying I give to my students if they use too much force or lack being with their 'opponent' I usually look at them shaking my head and say- 'Mmmm.... half hakama!'

Full Hakama-half tatami.

Keep up the good work.
