Aiki applications – Sometimes they just create themselves

It is sometimes said that there are 3 levels of Aikido practice – fixed practice, free practice and creative practice.

However, there are also times when Aiki applications just seem to create themselves. And so it was with the below application. An accidental backward trip over a hakama during ushiro practice resulted in a spontaneous sutemi waza (sacrifice throw) response. Before you knew, we were recreating the movement and practising a new form of Aiki application (at least for our dojo).
