Re: Dan, Mike, and Aikido

Mark

I can't object to applying tai chi principles to aikido, I ALREADY DO IT.

What I object to is people do not Practice aikido telling how to do aikido.

And if one is going to use these tai chi principles, I really think they should describe their usefulness in how they apply to Aikido technique, not to simply be able to emulate O'Sensei's Performances. If he thought being Unpushable was essential to aikido, he would have taught it to Somebody, doncha think?
