No problem, Jason... perhaps I did misunderstand. If you would explain kokyu and it define it in terms of western terms, that was the question at hand.

Correct me if I am wrong. Are you saying that eastern teachers have intentionally withheld information from their western students, and that is why it is so difficult to pinpoint the meaning of/understand/practice Kokyu?
Yes. They also don't tell all their eastern students, either. If you'll notice, a number of O-Sensei's students went to outside sources for ki and kokyu understanding because O-Sensei didn't show them.
