Re: Poll: Which movement direction in your body do you think is the most important in aikido techniques?
There are only two movements in aikido, Irimi (entering) and tenkan/kaiten (pivoting) both which are forward motion.
Since we are only allowed one vote, I voted forward. But there is also a very important motion i.e., downwards. Remember class, gravity is our friend. And aikido use the biggest object on this planet to hit their opponent that is Mother Earth herself.
