Re: Freeform Bokken Drills to Develop Aiki Flow

I use "double weighted" in the sense that the term is used in the Tai Chi classics.

I do not think words can portray as well as video, where I move from. I have a couple of traditional techniques performed with a smaller circle than normal on Youtube at "wuweimonks". You can probably analyze the movement I am talking about there for what it is worth..

Look for:

Small Circle Gedan Ate

Small Circle Sumi Otoshi

I have seen those figures but know nothing about them. The motions remind me of Ta Mo's 18 muscle change exercises but the faces look like warriors. What is the story you have on them?
