Re: Workshop with Mike Sigman on Ki in Aikido

Hi Ron:

BTW, I was telling some people on QiJin how impressed I was about the *speed* of the learning by the Aikidoists. It was very noticeable.

I'd like to recommend that the people at the workshop take a look at the exercises Tohei does in the video:

They're good exercises.... and how/why to do them should be fairly clear now.

Best.

Mike
Those are the standard ki soc warmup exercises, we do them most lessons here, they're also a large proportion of the ki test movements, assessed at various levels for mind and body coordination and ki.

I'd be very curious to hear a more detailed explanation of them from you Mike, meaning, how you see them from your point of view and how you'd explain how to do them correctly. Mostly because I've been teaching them for years and am always looking for new and better ways to explain them with regards to ki skills, I'm sure you have interesting insights
