In seiza, the whole body is positioned for correct breathing, especially, breathing that reaches the pelvic floor which is how we understand to be the correct way of breathing.

Irimi - Wikipedia

Is the act of entering straight into a technique, as opposed to the more indirect entrance into technique called tenkan. In basic training, irimi usually looks like a step forward, straight or at an angle but usually ending with the body facing the attacker, rather than in the direction of the step. To enter with irimi, the defender needs to move in the very moment of the attack or even himself initiate it. Aikido[edit] Meaning: Entering[1] or putting in the body.[2] Irimi (ee-ree-mee) is the second pillar of Aikido (Aikido techniques are structured around six main pillars).[3] Irimi involves entering deeply around or behind an attack to defuse or neutralize the attack.

The entering principle is basic to most Aikido movements as the postures and movements in Aikido contain quite a few oblique stances which are adapted from Sōjutsu (spear fighting).[1] References[edit] ^ Jump up to: a b c Ueshiba, K.

The Writing System. Posted by Tae Kim The Scripts Japanese consists of two scripts (referred to as kana) called Hiragana and Katakana, which are two versions of the same set of sounds in the language.

The Writing System

Hiragana and Katakana consist of a little less than 50 "letters", which are actually simplified Chinese characters adopted to form a phonetic script. Chinese characters, called Kanji in Japanese, are also heavily used in the Japanese writing. Most of the words in the Japanese written language are written in Kanji (nouns, verbs, adjectives). Hiragana is used mainly for grammatical purposes. While Katakana represents the same sounds as Hiragana, it is mainly used to represent newer words imported from western countries (since there are no Kanji associated with words based on the roman alphabet).
