Re: For Ted Ehara - Boundary of your aikido?

I have to echo Mark's post...

False. They wish to have a partner push on them...and they maintain their internal structure. So the push has no outward affect.

Quote:
The cognitive dissonnace is written on the face of the problem. The internal and external are set conflict. There is no unity -- only conflict. That the conflict is not overt is irrelevant. Can anybody spell p-a-s-s-i-v-e a-g-r-e-s-s-i-v-e?
Personally, I see much more passive agressive behavior in aikido...but maybe that's just me. Oh, wait...it's been mentioned before! Maybe it's not just me...

Best,
Ron
