Re: Workshop with Mike Sigman on Ki in Aikido

In the context of the exercises he presented, I would be hesitant personally to even use the word "attack", or even consider them in the context of "martial". they were simply exercises to develop certain physical responses.

It could have been Alexander Technique, Yoga, or a multitude of other things.

You could do this stuff and never even become "martial".

I think this is the challenge you face when coupling it with martial training. We immediately want to get to the martial.
