As for why and how these *should* be done... that is another topic for discussion.




In fact, that is exactly the question I am asking ; how to correctly do these exercises ?

I must also admit that your point of using house appliance and walls to practice seems to be really interresting. I would like to know more about it, if possible.

Just practice. People can give you all the tips in the world, but it still doesn't mean anything. Occasionally, your interpretation meets their intention and you gain something. However, if you stop and wait for the right words, you're going to lose too much time that could be applied productively to training.

Just do. If you focus and train diligently, you will come to understand the movements. The recipe is the same whether or not you have a qualified teacher. A good teacher just helps clear obstructions here and there... but you'll be training for some time before you're ready to start fixing mistakes.

If you just do your own best guess, you might be practicing doing something incorrectly. Sorry to break this to you, but it is true.
Example, if I were to practice my Aikido "cuts" the way Iaido teaches "cuts" (both done with a bokken BTW) I would be teaching my memory and body the wrong thing.

@Fabien,

I don't know how long you've been training for, how often you train, or what level you're at. I can only infer from your questions, that you are a beginner... aren't we all?

So anything I say may not make any sense to you. However, I can generally and safely say that all of these exercises deal with the forces of weight (gravity), the ground reaction force, and imaginary (read "vector") forces in 6 basic directions - front/back, left/right, up/down. It's how you use those forces to do the work that's the "key"... pun intended.

Although I agree with Adam to a point, that there is no right/wrong way to practice, and that any practice is better than no practice at all, I'd cæveat that by saying, at least by being cognizant of the *what* that is meant to be trained helps greatly.
