Miscellany of aiki hints

What I’ve been working on lately:
  • avoid, evade offline, do not engage, refuse to engage, brush off and disengage
  • kokyunage
  • maintain ma-ai – regain ma-ai
  • release instead of throwing
  • keep moving behind or away
  • if given the opportunity, cover uke’s hands
  • never stop moving long enough to execute a technique

What I’m getting ready to start emphasizing in my own practice:
  • Get precise parallel or perpendicular kuzushi before every technique
  • Sidestep at the end of the line to avoid losing your butt
