Do you think this is a good idea, why and why not?
I'm not clear on what you mean by dynamic tension. What it means to me might be different than what it means to you.

In the context of doing aikido sans uke, I'd think it is what I call keeping weight underside.

I do that alone all the time and I find it really helps. In fact, I just returned from visiting one of my kohai and gave it to her as her "home work" for this year.
