Ki and Koryu?
My question is, did the koryu jujutsu/kenjutsu arts ever talk about Ki the way that O Sensei and Tohei sensei did, in the sense that it could be 'extended' in a Jedi fashion?
Is this approach to Ki from O Sensei a post war creation as a result of Taisho and nationalist policies? Just a thought.
I have currently had my love for a Aikido re-ignited post a very low point with my previous organisation. When I read about the Koryu styles, namely Katori Shinto Ryu and Daito Ryu there is very little mention of 'Ki'.
I'd appreciate the education on this topic.
