I have just started training in aikido again after several years. Last night was my first class, and while doing a technique I tried to really concentrate on my breathing. It kind of got me wondering if there is a "rule of thumb" as far as when you inhale and when you exhale during techniques. Is it whatever comes natural to you, or is there a right way to do it for each technique?
Just make sure to make your breathing slow, controlled and continuous. Most of the time it's just remembering to breath while doing a technique. People tend to stop breathing when doing some exercises.

One-Aiki,
