Re: For Ted Ehara - Boundary of your aikido?

I have to echo Mark's post...

They wish to be pushed -- but do not wish to be pushed.
False. They wish to have a partner push on them...and they maintain their internal structure. So the push has no outward affect.

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,'s been mentioned before! Maybe it's not just me...
