I recently found out that aikido actually emphasizes spirals rather than circles and thought that this was an interesting article. 

Awesome.  I love how it started off with a discussion on physics and then slowly made a connection to aikido.  My sensei often talked about spirals in certain movements but I never fully understood the concept.  Thanks for sharing!

Aikido and Spirals

Never practice without doing proper warm-up and stretching.  I was too hasty to join class yesterday, so now all of my muscles are sore.  I can tell that it will last for a couple more days.  I wish I could deal with this like I would with a cramp or a sleeping foot- just move around even more until the pain away- but I’m not sure that that’s a good idea.  I have now learned my lesson.

This reminds me of hand grips in Aikido.
