Feldenkrais, Nature and Martial Response

Here's a great interview with Moshe Feldenkrais, conducted by aikido man Dennis Leri almost thirty years ago:

http://www.feldenkrais-wien.at/article-4.htm

It was linked on Aikido Journal.

I have cited Moshe Feldenkrais as a big influence in my developing the belief that aikido and aiki-jujutsu were developed from observation of toddler movement. Indeed, "observation" is the essence of the Feldenkrais Method. By observing ourselves on the most microscopic levels, through small movements, we can unlock both physical and psychological impediments to achieve things we may have thought would always remain out of our reach.

This article should be of deep interest to Dan, Mike, et al and everyone who has been involved in those discussions.

Best to all.
