Re: Slow Aikido

What I've been noticing a lot more is that moving sooner is better than moving more quickly. My tendancy has been to move quickly in response to an attack that has nearly connected. Because of that, I've been working on responding sooner and being more sensitive to the attack. I've found that moving sooner allows me to more at a more relaxed pace and my technique is crisper; not so hurried.
