Re: Changing Schools/ "styles"
That is actually what I've been trying to get at only I couldnt find the right words. Where the teqniques are similar (some of which are identical) I was curious as to how the transition would be. True the roots of each are very different but the similarity and in some instances identical technique is what had me confused.
The actual hardness I speak of would derive from the Daito Ryu influence that my current training was born from. The blending, redirection of force, breathing and so on would be from the Aikikai roots. Different but the same guess it depends on how its looked at.
