Re: Woman's Knife vs. Multiple Attack

It is close to some of what I am familiar with in the method of evasions, the entering and pivoting. In the particular style of aikido I am the most familiar with, the entry tends to be more dramatic. I think her use of knife work is great, and suppliments the way she moves.

I do not, however, see the kind of body structure in her that I am now trying to achieve. But I believe that I do see that in your movement. Would you care to discuss the differences?
