Re: How To Teach Power & Harmony?

As a newbie, I think that it is necessary to understand to harmonize (blending, leading the mind) first so we don't collide with our partners. Once we connect (harmonize) with them, we can lead them. Once their minds are led, their body follows and you can use little to no power to perform the art (meaning performing the waza naturally without forcing or flexing your muscles through the art). I think the major power of a technique relies on how well you harmonize and how well you lead your partner.

My 2 cents.
