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.


SHOMEN-ATE (TM), the solution to 90% of aikido and life's problems.
