If you stand and get totally balanced on your two legs, you cannot move from that spot. You need to have balance, break balance, and regain balance again with every step. Since I typically move in aikido, I'd say this statement is at best a 1/2 truth.
Actually, balance can be maintained on one foot, and kokyu can be applied from there. Once aiki is acheived, one can also move on one foot, or change feet, moving in any desired direction, and with with kokyu applied, aiki is maintained. Let's explore this sometime, shall we...?
