Re: Aikido and Chinese Martial arts

Aikido and the Chinese internal arts share an emphasis on structural alignment and precision, full body movement, relaxation, and timing. The Chinese arts have superior solo practice exercises, and develop attack as well as defense.

Also, the Chinese arts have cooler names for techniques. For example, "Second Form" (Nikkyo) becomes "Send the Devil to Hell".
