Re: Poll: Which of the following three shapes resonates the most with your own aikido

Hello Jun,

I think you need to explain much more clearly what you mean by 'resonate'. I have been training for nearly 40 years now, but I have never been in a situation where a 'shape' 'resonates' with my aikido training.

In my scenario, the other guy is trying to kill me and I have to stop him. What I do afterwards, in terms of aikido as a 'peaceful martial art' is moot. So, after the encounter (which is successful, or I would be dead), I can speculate about the encounter. But what would be the point of further wondering whether my 'resonation' is square, circular or triangular?

As always, best wishes,
