Well, I'd be interested in seeing you implement that, Erick. It's certainly not what I do and what I know of in Asian martial arts.
I implement it every night I am in the Dojo and will again tonight. I will try to make these things a bit more organized, however, in written form.

Maybe O-Sensei was misleading us with that "Ki of Heaven" and "Ki of Earth" stuff.
He just was not mechanically-minded. Biomechanically, an intuitive genius, but not capable or interested in Western analytical mechanics. He had great respect for it and advocated scientific approaches to his budo. He said so in Budo Renshu. He simply was not up to doing it himself.
