” Hold your partner as you would cradle a baby”. Morihei Ueshiba
Our approach is the antithesis of self-defence in that we seek to protect our partners face, thoat, ribs, breasts and genitals etc (the openings) from weight baring or impact! We also allow are partner joints freedom to move as they require, to avoid twisting or dislocation. We don’t drop our partners but let them down gently. We attune moment to moment to our partners potential and limitations and vulnerability.
