Re: Interview with Aikido Shihan Nobuyuki Watanabe, Part 2

When I practiced at Nippon Kan, Homma Sensei pointed out his closed hand and open hand in the portrait. I dont remember specifically what he said but, he stated the importance of his hands in the picture. Homma Sensei descriptively called the closed hand an "pine cone". He said the closed hand was used in kaeshi waza to reverse techniques.
