Re: Workshop with Mike Sigman on Ki in Aikido

Kevin,

That's it, exactly. My earlier post was incomplete. What I was trying to say is that we expect a lot of different things from uke -- some things are vastly different depending on the context, some might even be apparently contradictory, but optimal training depends on uke being up to whatever is needed.

I believe Mike also mentioned at least once something along the lines of, "Training isn't fighting."
