Re: Using less force on a smaller person w/o being patronizing

In fact maybe Basia will be pleased because we can get back to physics.
LOL! I'm always happy to get back to physics . Just ask anyone who knows me...

I don't think it's useful to get into a discussion about physics equations because that's probably not going to help your aikido to improve.
Well, I may just be weird that way, but I do find sometimes thinking about physics equations is just what I need to help me understand something. Not always, but often enough.

In any case, as far as force goes, as far as I can understand so far to me it seems like more a matter of using force right, and using force generated the right way, and particularly, not directly opposing your force to uke's. Certainly people seem to throw ME with a lot of force sometimes .
