Verbal Tenkan

There's far more to tenkan than physical motions. Just as an attack can be verbal, so can a tenkan be verbal.

See the works of Suzette Elgin ("Sources") for the underlying rationale behind verbal attack patterns and the tools to deal with them.

  • See Dobson (1987) for attacks and defenses translated into the visible images of circle-triangle-square.
  • See the movie Grand Canyon in which an Aikido master disguised as a towtruck operator uses these same tools and techniques.
  • Use the circle-triangle-square analogy to diagram the encounter.
