One thing - two actions in aikido

There are only about two things that you ever do in aikido...
  • enter - crash into the opponent's center of mass, occupying their territory to such a degree that they don't have the freedom to mount an offensive.
  • turn away - step aside and give way, letting them spin off of you and creating so much space that they can't effectively attack.
The space between enter and turn... the middle ground... this is a killing field.  You don't want to hesitate in the middle space.  He who hesitates is lunch.
