In this brief talk I attempt to quickly recap the basic structure of the Ueshiba’s cosmology and its relationship to how he typically described Aiki, and how those two things relate to Kokyu. I’m not going into depth, rather I hope to help readers understand how Ueshiba’s cosmology, understanding of Aiki and the concept of Kokyu all relate to the solo body movement exercises I learned from Shirata sensei. Hopefully the talk will also help readers to understand the vital relationship of push tests with the solo body movement exercises specifically, and kokyu, Aiki, and Cosmology in general.
I also suggest that readers study this post by Chris Li: Aikido Sangenkai In particular, be sure to scroll down to articles appendix: Dobun by Morihei Ueshiba. Perhaps in a later post I will explain how the Kagura Mai is a model exemplifying everything discussed here.
