In General Soft is hard Entry Tools Rate This Entry

I was recently instructed by a very kind man to explain on 'Aikiweb' that the soft stuff rocks..

I practice Shudokan Aikido, which is of Yoshinkan lineage. Often referred to as the 'hard style'. That doesn't mean we are all brutes with no sense of the subtlety of Aikido.

That also doesn't mean I believe in the force and remote technique and ringing bells with kiai!! The more I learn about Ki in fact the less I believe in it. I think this is because all the things that are commonly associated with Ki are to often steeped in a hocus pocus that they do not deserve and does not do them justice. Ki is not a superstitious word. It describes the correct application of technique. When you don't understand the technique, don't put it down to magic. Because one day you will understand.

THE SOFT STUFF ROCKS!!
