I am 4th Kyu ^^
No problem! You practice Aikido?
The opposing forces reminds me of irimi tenchi-nage in particular, not necessarily the stretch pictured here of course.

^_^ That's a nice poem. I'm glad you saw the connection.
Thats really good. I like the shadow and the musculature you have going there as well as the energy to it.
