Re: Internal-Aiki.com, a new forum for discussing all the "internal" stuff
Mark and Ron laid out the primary reasons for a new site. I agree with you, Stephen, that despite the bickering, the discussion still has value for the folks here at AikiWeb. But as I said in my intro, there are more and more people trying to learn this stuff long-distance. Thus, it's becoming more critical for folks to be able to find quality info on the web. The bickering and constant re-treading of old ground makes it difficult for folks to do that.
And I don't see this as some sort of conflict with AikiWeb (or any of the other popular Aikido sites). I like AikiWeb, I plan on continuing to check in here, and I'm sure others will too.
