Re: Sword work, internal skill, & "Aiki"

Quote:
Wouldn't something like, say, ukenagashi be considered flowing/blending with momentum?
As it's done in Aikido, yes. In other sword work? Maybe not...my experience in aikido of this is that it is highly dependant on timing, awase, musubi, things like that. I personally could never get that to work with someone trained in sword.

Best,
Ron
