Chiba sensei discusses the 3 W's (when, where, what) that encompass a martial encounter. Emphasizing all three in your martial arts practice with every execution of technique will help develop your Aikido. When implies timing of intiation, can be physical or psychological. Where implies body position, tai sabaki, footwork. What is what you execute with, ie technique.
