Re: Ellis Amdur in Maryland Jan. 28 - 29

Ron, thanks for your very interesting review and I think it must be a rare experience about that I am literally a little bit envious.

For a long time I was thinking that loss of sword training in most Aikido school was the reason for the deterioration of todays Aikido.

My opinion is that intensive and correct "Suburi" was the most basic and important factor in Aikido and Daito-ryu. In other words, a method to create "Ki/Kokyu" if I link this to the ongoing discussion on E-budo forums and other places.

Again, thanks a lot.
