Re: Aikido IP/IS: Advanced Expositions in Centripetal Force

In fact, looking at 1:08 on that video.. look at the structure that's created after they grab me. We're all loaded up with energy - we're coupled together into a single structure. I can't move because I've become a structure that's over 600lbs and over 8' wide, 6' tall, and about 2-3' deep.

When I discharge and drain the energy - through my feet and hands - by decoupling from the big structure, I am then free to move myself. And the energy that was held in both of the guys drains out through my feet and hands. That's me creating centrifugal force. Now look at 1:22 when they start moving - that's centripetal force.
