Re: Moriteru Ueshiba v Christian Tissier

Here's an example of what I mean by looking at something from such a view. What I notice is:

1st, keeping ma-ai. next he is turning tenkan which employs both entering and circle principles, finally and amazingly he is allowing his body to break ie:not keep ma-ai whilst at the same time his head is basically doing a number of irimi's (entering off line behind the punch) all whilst the feet are going backwards to readjust balance. Extraordinary in my opinion.

Peace.G.
