In regards to your comment about the mystics I have a question. Now I have heard my Sifu speak of the"mystics", and also other such as Seagal Sensei. Seagal mentioned that he was training hard and not getting anywhere and wasnt until he studied the mystics that his Aikido took off. In your opinion what is this "mystics" he and others speak of...is it proper understanding and control of ones Ki, to therefor have truly a "soft" art? For having that kind of control could be considered "mystical" by some I guess.
Thanx You and Peace
