Re: Ikeda Sensei Demos of Ki

To reference what Cherie mentioned about moving the center to his hand....
Ikeda Sensei would connect (at the last seminar I was priviledged to attend), and then maintain the connection he established through his hand, even as his body dis-connected and moved freely in other directions, this allowed him to make his position not be a factor in the "driving of the four legged unit" untill he moved his hand and effected ukes center.

remarkable really to watch
even more remarkable to hear it explained and freely given to all watching.

Play nice, practice hard, but remember, this is a MARTIAL art!
