Ikkyo With Attitude

Like everything else in Aikido, the success of ikkyo-undo depends upon inner attitude. Experiment with the following (nage actually saying the words aloud while doing ikkyo):

  1. "No! No! No!"
  2. "Yes! Yes! Yes!"
  3. A cheery "Hi there! Thank you for the opportunity to practice Aikido!" (See "Yes and No" on page 137.)
  4. Notice how uke's arm position changes depending on whether:
  • Modeling fear ("Uh, oh!") or
  • Welcome.
