Re: Correct Movement in Aikido

i would agree with you Mike for the most part. I think being physically tired can be a hinderance to this process.

I have though, experienced "letting go" of some of the physicalities (strength) though when training past the point of exhaustion where it becomes more crucial that you use correct posture and technique because strength and muscularity are of little use. But I do think that is much different. It simply becomes more critical that you use correct alignment. I don't think it helps teach you the alignment though.

I think it is probably better to have all your faculties and be "together" instead of having the additional stress of fatique.
