Re: No Balance No Aikido

IMHO, the basics of Aikido is blending (non-resistance) and balance (taking theirs while maintaining your onw).

Solo practice? (1) Irimi-tenkan (step and turn). Work on staying relaxed and keeping body aligned. (2) Read, (3) Generic cardiovascular conditioning, (4) relax and stayed centered in all you do.
