Re: Internal & External strength discussion

Mike, I wonder though, as a foot in the door approach isn't there a lot to be gained by Western explanations like you yourself use? - people who are interested can then search for the good teachers without having a metaphysical misunderstanding of "chi". I mean, watching Abe sensei's students brainlessly copying movements is not much different in result from Westerners who eschew the idea of "ki" on scientific grounds - both are missing the point.
