Re: Aikido With an Attitude: The Other Intenal Strength (or Weakness)

Seiser Sensei, your article has showed me what 'internal' really means in Aikido.
In my early year of trainings, I've experienced some real life confrontations and in those confrontations my Aikido techniques dissapeared like smoke.
Lately, I've been experiencing a great 'internalization' of Aikido (if it can be called that) .
I realized now that techniques can be perfected, but the right attitude and emotions has to be the base to build those perfection also.
Now I hope I won't choke as much as the last time I was faced with real life confrontations.

Peace & Respect,

Albert. O
