Re: Standing Postures in Aikido?

I remembered last night that I did a seminar with Tada sensei when I was in Japan. He spent the first half hour or so doing standing breathing techniques. I don't remember much about them to be honest, nor whether they are for meditation purposes per se, although they maybe. I just google for Tada sensei and breathing and came up with two sites both containing a transcript of a Tada sensei lecture, possibly the same lecture. Haven't read them in full yet but they may be of interest?

A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"
