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..
