Re: Aikido as External Art -or- Where's the Chewy Center?
I look to go where he pointed. I do not dispute that he pointed other ways also. Kokyu expands in all directions simultaneously, so there is no conflict or contradiciton in that, at all. I just hope to find somebody farther along to make this particular path a little clearer.
I feel like a lost, wandering shodan. I don't feel ready to be a teacher. I'd much prefer to be a student. But what choice do I have. If I want to train I must teach. Simple as that. In the meantime I steal what I can from the "seminar" circuit. A poor substitution for a sensei but I do what I can.
