Re: Tenkan - advanced

Kancho Inoue mentioned recently that Shioda told him to imagine when doing tenkan, extend ki all the way past horizon and it goes around the world and connects to uke's back. You can almost imagine how uke is being driven forwards from that extension.

Draw strength from stillness. Learn to act without acting. And never underestimate a samurai cat.
