Re: Tai Sabaki

Tai sabaki is key to learning to set up a technique and it helps train the body to respond to attacks appropriately. If you can't set up the technique the throw or takedown is meaningless since you are likely forcing it with muscle to make it work. You come out of the Toyoda lineage and he, rest his soul, stressed tai sabaki.
