Thank you for your response - your comments do make sense to me and I encourage you to continue down that path. A few key points to remember: keep mind and body coordinated, connect to AND trough Uke's center, and move you not Uke
Thank you I intend to do so. These are all things that my teachers continue to encourage as well. I find these kinds of exercises endlessly fascinating.
I mean don;'t get me working I love being tossed across the dojo and making uke fly like an airplane but these connection exercises are really cool.
Cherie, your description made me immediately think of Larry Novick's "kinesthetic invisibility"... indeed something to strive for.
That's an interesting idea and a perfect way to describe it. Not familiar with who Larry Novick is but you have me intrigued.
