Sorry Walter Martindale. It was Andrew Smallcoombe. They are spelled almost exactly the same.

No worries. I only get really cranky when people reprint my work without properly citing it...
It's happened...

Given that understanding, what might the exercise lend itself to? How do people approach the exercie?
I rather like Greg's remarks about pushing with the "yang" part of he body instead of the "yin." I think I can see what he's describing.
That just sounds naughty.

And Smallacoombe and Smallacombe are even closer.
(Aparently variations of the same - much like Amdur and AMdur?

But thanks for the info - I was wondering about the link between a Shinto exercise and an aikido training method.
I like funakogi for its development of balance. I've seen Y. Kobayashi Sensei demonstrate it to good effect.

Warning: Do not bend, fold or otherwise abuse... until we get to the dojo..
