Re: Poll: How often do you perform aikido techniques without moving your feet?

A matter of definition:

We normally move before the technique, but during the technique itself we often stay in place and just rotate our hips and feet, without movement. It's difficult to explain the movement in words, but this is one of the characteristics I find for Korindo Aikido - smaller foot work and extended hip work for power generation.
Tori can step in the technique when the technique demands it, or his harmony with Uke requires it. But in many cases, high quality technique would be implemented with a single pre-exaction move.
