Re: walking in a circle technique??

You don't walk him, you 'ride' on his power. This cannot be achieved without Atari from both but especially important from uke.

I'm thinking it's tenkan... But works about the same in irimi too.

The whole point of this exercise is not timing, it's whether you can feel uke's power and tap it.

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