Talking Finding Center

Hi all,
It is said that one should always keep a fixed center line while executing an Aikido technique. How do i find my center?

What a question!! I have been taught that this is in reference to keeping the technique in front of you (or your center line). Not to let the technique happen, or end up, at either side of you where you are considerably weaker.

How to find your center, hummmmmm..........ok, look down, see your belly button? if not, see a doctor, if so, look 1.5 - 2 inches below that. There it is, the CENTER of your Body!!

Now the fun part. Spend the rest of your life trying to figure out how to use it!! Good Luck!
