Unbendable Arm


by Webmaster - Sept 14th 2000

Did you know?

One of the effects of aikido on its practitioners is the enhancement of concentration, here's an example

If a person concentrates on imagining something, it will help if the mind joins the effort

If you are an aikidoka, try stretching your arm in kokyu and maintain a relaxed stance, all the while imagining that your palm is spraying water like a water hose, or that your arm is touching the opposite wall

Next, have a person attempt to bend your arm using at first steady pressure, then gradually all of his / her strength

As long as you maintain the imagination in your head, and not intimidated by the strength of your "opponent", the arm will stay stretched, no matter how strong the pressure applied

Just imagine as if you are practicing Kokyu arm movement

This test requires half-confidence, half-technique, and all of your concentration

In time, you will be able to use this on any part of your body

For those of you who have met Hakim Sensei, you'll know what I mean

Good Luck Trying !
