Hi Aikidoka,

In my opinion, five elements must exist in the basic techniques of Aikido:

1) Te Gatana
2) Hara
3) ground (using the legs and the ground)
4) breathing
5) timing
What do you mean by 1 & 2, since they might be interpeted in different ways. Also, why the Japanese instead of English equivalent?

Is this list in order of priority?

Just wondering,

Ted Ehara
