Re: Kokyu development for Aiki in Aikido
Yes, this is a good start. I think this gives an accurate description of developing the skills required that are then used in Tenchinage. Some things it did not address:
Removing slack from the partner's body.
Use of open/close in our body in coordination with the waza.
But I think you've handed me a foundation at least to discuss some of the things that need to go on. If someone has some Japanese terms for some of these same things, that would be good too.
Could you speak a little about how you would apply these things in Tenchinage?
