Re: Article: An Unjust Belief by Paul Schweer

Maybe YOU could give us some word how this "Unjust Belief" is related to AIKIDO ? Or isnīt it ?
I'm not Paul (just double-checked, nope, I'm not)...but to me the issue of intent vs. action is universal.
Within the aikido world, some people have posited that part of what distinguishes aikido from aikijutsu is intent (I'm not taking a position, merely pointing out that this position exists).
Then there is intent as in the intent of our attacks: are they meant to truly hurt our training partners, or to provide a certain energy, or some other intent?
