Re: X: Unknown Mysteries, Buried Treasures, and Multiplicity

Your example of X as a multiplier reminded me of another use of X -- as a vector description. We've been working on this principle in the dojo, where you redirect the force vector. So, if you get an attack on the X axis, you direct your energy to the Y or Z axis (or I guess optimally a spiral, creating infinite tangents). Coincidentally, this was highlighted in one of Chris' recent blogs: http://www.aikidosangenkai.org/blog/.../#.UhJQ55Ip-z4
Works like a charm!
Man, wished I had thought/remembered the vector thing. Compliments.

Redirecting is so important. I do tend to use a tight spiral.

I'll follow up reading the blog.

If nothing comes up sooner, I'll be over in December.

Thanks for reading and commenting.
