Re: Controlling balance of attacker

Nice post, Mario.

I believe the point you made above is critical.

The only way to move as you describe, and be non-random, is aiki.

When facing a weapon as devastating as a sword, this skill/ability is so much more important than the "IP/IT/IS" skills that we see discussed so often on these forums (which, of course, are not unimportant in and of themselves).
