Re: Office Aikido

Interesting with all the sliding of the feet. I always get 'dame' when the feet start to slide. By taking an actual step by lifting the feet one avoids all manner of obstacles/clutter encountered in the real world that do not clutter the dojo floor. When moving backwards sliding is not so bad for the following foot ...

Can one perfrom those movements with actual stepping instead of sliding without breaking the form?

Ultracrepidarianism ... don't.
