Bewegung & Lebenskunst

First detail is, how to draw the Uke into his attack such that he looses hi sbalance. To this end you stand where you are but you inhale and straighten your front leg, spine, neck, and head in one line. By doing this your head moves some distance to the back. The original attack will fail to hit your head, Uke tries to correct and while doing this stumbles forward. Only then you turn on spot and bring your head above the other foot. Now you can naturally go on with Shiho Nage. Second detail is on how to move the arm. If the attack was prolonged with the right hand your right hand touches it. Your left hand may target the elbow and by pressing your thumb into the inner side of the elbow joint and moving both of your hands as if you raise a sword above your head.

A traditional perspective to develop ones personality and to figure out why you are on this planet: As already (Western) ancient philosophers told us, it is the body and what you decide to develop it for which is constitutive for what life you will live. There were two concurrent schools, so to say: Athen and Sparta. Athen sponsored the Olympic Games while Sparta refused to participate. What you learn to win a competition is not relevant on the battlefield. This could have been said by a samurai in later centuries. In the Western culture this knowledge became a side stream when in Japan it was the main stream. The knowledge about how to learn and develop your personality by means of your body is now coming back to us Westerners by the Eastern so-called martial arts and health systems like Yoga. In our Center for Movement & Hedonism we try to offer interrelated but different ways based upon these traditions and ancient knowledge. We, Sabine and Thomas Christaller, started many years ago by learning Aikido. Therefore a main focus here is on Aikido.
