speed, footwork

Generally speaking, kyu-level students in aikido have feet of lead.

When doing turning techniques, nage is in the center and uke is on the perimeter. As a result, uke must move faster.

Such training increases speed, agility, and stamina. In short, fast feet.

Ultimately, this enhances waza.
