Aïkido Knowledge base
Swordmanship basis
The suburi techniques must be performed according to basic Aïkido theory and philosophy. It is important that all Suburi must be done with full extension of Ki. Several Suburi done with full Ki extension are much better than thousands done lightly. 

The beginning posture must be in accordance with the back triangle. The pommel of the sword is in line with the navel. This alignment makes movement forth and back and right and left easier.
