Suriashi exercise

This article is a stub. You can help by expanding it.

Diagonal cross-step exercise with strong focus on Suriashi: keeping the feet in contact with the ground throughout stand-up body movements. When moving, the feet are kept flat, and they are lifted exactly enough to overcome friction with the surface being stood on, but not enough to stick. Suri-ashi attempts to avoid lifting the feet off the ground so that they lift above the ground, and contribute to a rise in height (particularly of the hips / center of gravity). 

need better description of above exercise

also, include here the shuffle & cross-step exercise where someone is behind you pulling hard on the gi belt

Collaboration for a Public Resource

The wealth of content in a Wiki site depends on the participation of its visitors making incremental improvements.

Because of the contentious nature of this content, and the ubiquity of spam, until a large community of defenders of the content exists (usually past authors and other interested parties), we require contributors to create a free account here. Users can then contribute, for example:

  • Editing a page using the 'Edit' tab.
  • Creating new pages by adding a link to potential topics, using [[ ]]
  • Contributions can be point form, expanding an existing paragraph, original writing, helping correct spelling, grammar or clarity, adding wiki syntax to non-wiki content, adding links to existing internet content, etc… Additions need not be complete or even well-crafted in order to move the content building forward.
  • Discussing page concepts and content using the 'Discussion'.
  • 'Watching' pages that you've edited or topics that interest you, and correct vandalism. Conceptual disagreements should be moved to the Discussion area.
