Re: Tenkan and Centrifugal Force

Well, the apparent friction at the beginning of the discussion was the picture of tenkan as a turning entry prior to a technique versus some people viewing tenkan as a spinning envelopment, more or less. I've looked around on the internet and Kisshomaru Ueshiba's book and I think tenkan is sustainably argued as simply the turning, off-line entry. However, Gozo Shioda describes (page 19, "Total Aikido") kaiten as the enveloping spin, etc., as some people viewed tenkan.

FWIW
