Re: circle, square, triangle?

hi ho

Can someone explain these aikido metaphors? Or perhaps post a url that does so?
You will probably find much information regarding the "metaphorical" significance of Circle-Triangle-Square. You may also find that one bit of information you read contradicts some other bit of information that you find somewhere else. With regards to "practical" information on how it relates to Aikido principles and methods, I offer this

Circle = Tenkan

Triangle = Irimi

Square = Kokyu

All three elements together reveal "aiki"

I no longer participate in or read the discussion forums here on AikiWeb due to the unfair and uneven treatment of people by the owner/administrator.
