It's Not Circles

In class last night, Shihan was explaining his understanding of movement with techniques. It's not movement in circles, it's movement in spirals. Everything spirals up or down, in or out, or some combination of directions. He mentioned seeing old footage of O'Sensei performing misogi no jo and the spiraling thrusts up into the heavens and down into the earth as an example of the flow of energy we should be thinking of.
