Re: Correct Movement in Aikido

Well..... maybe sometimes there's epiphanies, but if nothing else, Rob, take a look at the huge size of martial arts in the West (as an example)... surely of working to exhaustion had credible benefits for improving movement and taking it to kokyu and ki development, you'd see more kokyu and ki development in the West. A lot of those people work hard. Ipso facto, working to exhaustion may help, but enough to show any measureable growth in those skills in the West. So maybe it's better to learn what to do and then work as hard as you want.

FWIW
