Re: So where is your weight?

What I am currently trying to do is keep my weight spread throughout me originating in seika tanden. the premise being when one piece moves all pieces move, as a coherent unit. The aim is for center to be everywhere so that upon contact my partner(opponent) receives all of me but is unable to locate a point of transfer to gain access. When it works (and it is a work in progress) people find it extremely difficult to move me whilst I feel very relaxed, whilst on the other hand I find it very easy to move them without employing a specific waza aimed at kuzushi. it helps that i have one hip due for reconstruction so big fancy movements are no longer an option. I won't leave the centre line, you will, and not because of me but because of you!

If your temper rises withdraw your hand, if your hand rises withdraw your temper.
