Breaking balance

From a conversation with Hiroshi Ikeda Sensei at his Aikido dojo in Boulder in December:

To gain control by breaking balance:

  1. Establish connection.
  2. Through attention to partner’s structure, move one point, even a little bit, to establish motion.
  3. Then creativity is possible.

All of this done relaxed, with no force or anger.
