Re: On viewing technique

I don't have secret. When I watch a technique for the first time I pull in all that I can on the first demonstration, then focus on whatever part I don't understand in follow-on demonstrations (legs, hands, hips, or whatever it is). I find the more I understand aikido, the less I have to focus on 'main body' items like the feet or hips (which is what many will say is the more important parts) and simply just focus on the minor details like hand placement and stepping order, etc.

Ichi Go, Ichi Ei!
