Question after question...

"In aikido and judo I was always trying to make a person take a step. Now as I am developing a aikijujutsu approach I am trying to get people to float or sink with little ability to move their feet. This is what i believe the Tai Chi Classics refers to double weighting. It is a useful concept to chase. How do you affect a person's weight on their feet?"

Hirakawa Sensei said "Every person wishes to control the flow of events around them. The person moving upstream against fast water wishes for stillness; the person in a stagnant marshland wishes for running water. The person facing a tsunami wishes for ANYTHING else. However, when you give them their desire it usually turns out they cannot handle it.

So the thing to do is give them what they want when they do not expect it."
