Re: hips and shoulders

When I started having to do kokyudosa sitting crosslegged rather than in seiza I learned in-the-body by necessity the difference between "moving hips" (which I cannot do when planted cross-legged) and "moving center" (which I've been working on moving more effectively for some time and still can't the way I want...but doing slow partnered kokyudosa is a wonderful training tool for it).
