Re: Poll: Which do you think is more important in aikido?

I think the chicken or the egg question has really frustrated us!!!!

I have stopped beating my wife Mr. Modesto, now if you could please get her to stop beating me!

I answered stability, because I found stillness before I found mobility. I answered stability because I found my center and hence my mobility while 'falling'. When I relaxed in koshi ukemi the world opened. Of course, this was many years ago, and if I relax in koshi ukemi now I'll surely die!!.
