Re: Slow Aikido

This is where The Principle of Ten applies.

If you're attacked slowly (3), you should move quickly (7) so the result is 10. If you're attacked quickly (6), you should move slower (4) so the result is 10, but you also have to move earlier.

Think of this as a principle of ma-ai that you can refine through practice.

It is not practice that makes perfect, it is correct practice that makes perfect.
