I think we have all seen, or used some analogies to help explain aikido techniques. Sometimes they are helpful, sometime a bit contrived. Late one night at the dojo we decided to put a few through their paces…here's what it looked like. Thanks Alison and Eric sensei's for being such good uke's…err…sports!
Since posting this a few other analogies have come out of the woodwork
I remember Jaime Zimron sensei did a nice demo at the aikiexpo in 2002 using golf clubs, unfortunately all i could see on the web was this somewhat cheesey video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZV9xKiqLYIU
from the aikiweb something with the beer bottles
thanks to Keith Gates
