Balancing Heaven & Earth

Oktober 24, 2006

It never ceases to amaze me how much I learn from giving an aikido practice. Last night whilst I was watching the group doing Ikkyo from katate tori ai hanmi a few things became clear. One of the things I look foward to taking into practice (when my knee allows me) is that it is so easy to focus on earthing oneself or leading energy up to heaven but to find the balance of heaven and earth is not so simple. When we find the balance between heaven and earth in our movement we can really experience being centered. Tenchi nage of course is a form that helps us practice that but I really started to see it in ikkyo last night. So thanks everyone, I’m looking foward to Friday. 😉
