Re: Tenkan and Centrifugal Force

There is no "centrifugal force"... what you feel is an object attempting to maintain it's straight-line direction (Newton's First Law, I believe) while you try to contain it in rotational movement.
Earn a gold star from most of my maths and science teachers. Except Mr Kugelman: he never gave them out. Just detentions. But anyway...

You seem awfully caught up on that one point (albeit amongst many others of similar importance...). Genuinely caught up? Or just more grist for the mill?

Should I call "Aikido" "that thing"?
Or everything else for that matter? Where, in the Gospel According to Mike, does one draw the line?
Might get confusing. How about I just call it Aikido?
