Re: softening exercises for uke

We simply do what we call kokyuho exercises.

Take shihonage/iriminage/kokyuho and do it in slow deliberate movements, focusing on the breath with the movement, and allowing uke to stretch and breathe with the movement without being thrown, or pinned. [This is a warm up exercise good for softening up both people... is that what you mean?]

Peace
