Re: Culture of Martial Mediocrity?

Exactly Edwin. I agree totally. Sen no Sen is good, but it does not belay having an effective failover mechanism. Aiki is about matching and blending after all. One should be able to move seamlessly and spontaneously into the next movement should the initial movement be thwarted.

Good post.
