Why is aikido easy?
- There is only one direction: forward. No matter which direction your body moves, your spirit will always move forward. This leads to your weight being mostly on your front leg.
- Your hands are always in front of you. How convenient, you have something to remind you where your spirit is moving to.
- Hands are an extension of your center, seika tanden, and as such don't really do anything on their own. Every action starts in the center.
I’ll list more as I remember them :)
