Bouncing Ki

In groups of two or three,

  1. Nage places a hand on floor; uke presses and extends ki down on nage's hand. Nage tries to lift the hand with muscle. Note effort required.
  2. Nage imagines joining with uke's downward ki and sending it all down to the center of the earth; it bounces back to help lift the hand.

3. Compare the effort involved with "bouncing ¿f to the effort required to lift the hand through sheer muscle and determination.

Work with one uke pressing one hand, or two ukes, one for each hand. (During the technique, the second uke may test nage for stability.)
