it does seem that some styles don't teach relaxation until 'higher-level' stuff.

And Ki Aikido teaches relaxation from the beginning.

If you compare Aikido to say, piano playing....
one wonders which is better in the long run?
If I'd understood then what I know now, Wayne, I'd say the relaxed approach, without a doubt. But with more data than just the vagaries.

and btw Mike, which Aikidoka were you? I was at that seminar, the only guy in the room with a purple belt.
I was the one with the classical Greek profile and the humble demeanor.

Mike
