The Value of Slow Movement with Awareness

Ki Aikido is totally about awareness and directed attention – and it can be practised slowly.

I personally practise movements slowly and then only speed up later when going for a workout or ‘realistic’ speed.

Now, I will appreciate the slow work even more!
