Re: Slow, mindful movement
Slow movement that is sound in principle is absolutely necessary to understand and develop movement that truly "fits" your body. When you can do sotaigata training with both people going slowly with proper coordination together you then have a real laboratory to work in and explore and grow. Slow randori in that laboratory is absolutely wonderful and necessary to develop real understanding of randori. Intuitive problem solving at slow speeds will lead to your own mastery.
