The bent unbendable arm

If you let your arms hang at your sides, relaxed, you will notice a slight bend at the elbow. This relaxed, natural bend is the proper shape for the basic unbendable arm in aikido. Just leave the arm the shape it is hanging at your side, but raise it up to point forward in your center. Voila – unbendable arm. It's nothing special – just getting your arms in front of your chest without letting them change from that relaxed shape.
This month we'll be emphasizing unbendable arm in all our aikido classes as well as on the blog. Stay tuned for more tidbits on the unbendable arm.
