Re: Magic, Bullfighting, Front-loaders, and Aikido

Sometimes I try to help myself by movement analogies like that. These are some that I currently find useful (4th kyu, so perhaps they are very common and trivial for others):

In kokyu dosa I might "pick up a bucket filled with beer, put it to my mouth and empy it". In kosa dori iriminage I might try to use my hand as a "lure" (like in greyhound racing). In ryotedori tenchinage I might try to "skate" behind uke.

I like your images. Thanks!
