Try this. Take a piece of paper, draw a circle, then put a dot where the center is. Now mark where the front of it is. Difficult?
This idea came to mind when I thought about the phrase, "Keep your hands in front of your center". The phrase seems to suggest that we are simply two dimensional objects with a front and back. Where is the front of a center of a circle?
You made that one too easy. It's dynamic (as opposed to static) continually changing as the event unfolds. (*See A. Westbrook and O. Ratti's "Aikido And The Dynamic Sphere"). Next question please?
