Re: can aikido benefit from chinese arts?

Hi David;

Did he really? The way I read his convulutions is that you can't bring something to an art that is already there AND the arts (I think he was overgeneralizing) are so different that one way of teaching or emphasis can't help the other.

I tend to disagree with the latter in that we often get stuck trying to learn something one way and exposure to a different approach might give that ah ha moment that we needed.
