Re: Aikido minus mysticism: a step forward

That might have been fortuitous for the Amish - preventing the awful tragedy of last week. Very practical body useage is a key survival skill after all, no matter how diluted this sensibility has become in many members of modern society. Humans can "harm at a distance", luckily for us, since we are so weak, but without body skills we would not be able to protect our closest distances very well.
