Re: How does this Square, Circle, Triangle relate to Aikido?

I asked Imaizumi Sensei this once. He said "If we are talking about just aikido, then the square is the basics, the foundation, the circle is tenkan, and the triangle is irimi." He talked about this when he opened up for one of the aiki expo demos as well.

"The martial arts progress from the complex to the simple."
