Re: No Balance No Aikido

Shaun, I'm not sure I understand what you are saying. The very act of walking, running etc. is off balance. Were so used to it, that it seems like we never lose our balance when in fact we are almost always out of balance when we are in motion.

Chris, a bike has 2 wheels in constant contact with the ground, and there is no weight shift either. A top has symmetrical mass which is spinning on an axis. These 2 examples aren't the same as when we walk. The Bike and Top require Motion to make them balance.
