Re: hips and shoulders

I think it's more of 'originating' movement of the arms and legs from the center instead of from the shoulders and hips... And then later, not so much of 'originating' but just a single central line floating. Hands and legs floating too. Can't muscle something that floats, and can't muscle a sword either.

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