*SIGH*. Seriously, if anyone could really help me with this question.

There are two aspects to Kuzushi balance (shikoku) and breath (kokyu-ho) both of which need to be present to work manipulate a resisting uke along his ki lines.

If you want to get specifics of this, and you can make it down to Los Angeles, try looking up a few of the seniors students at Aikido Doshinokai Dojo, in Culver City.

Don't forget to tell them I sent you and that you request the full treatment....

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.
