What was said and what was different?
One of the things that struck me as different, was that there was no mention in the book about taking up slack before doing a technique. Ikeda Sensei specifically mentioned taking up slack in one technique. He didn't use those words, but indicated with a gesture and mentioned what he was doing. Since most techniques fail because slack is improperly taken up, I thought that was kinda important.

It is not practice that makes perfect, it is correct practice that makes perfect.
