Re: Basic elements of Aikido

My reply was too short, I think. The "sounds" and "vibrations" thing originates in India (think of the mantras at certain tones and of things like "OM", which also happens to be a ki/qi/prana developing device). The Chinese developed their own versions along the same theory-lines, etc., which most probably came to China via India. Given how many of these things have been laughed off and then later turned out to have a basis in fact, it makes one wonder if some more research shouldn't be done on the relationship of certain vibrations with the mind/fascia/body thing.

FWIW

Mike
