Re: Been There, Done That Attitude
There's a trick I learned from my sensei who studied a bit with Shingo Nakao. You're in seiza. A standing uke pushes with both hands on your shoulders. Somehow you have to relax and reroute his push 90 degrees so that it goes straight into the ground and you remain relaxed and upright. No leaning forward or pushing back. I can do the trick, but it doesnt really mean much of anything yet. It has yet to permeate the other parts of my waza. Its like the scent of something great, but I have not had the chance to take it any further. Some day....
