Re: why focus on internal power

Well said, Mary. Aikido is about balance, so what could be better than recognizing the importance of balance between mind, body and spirit? But I do stress balance, because I have also seen training where ki is over-emphasized. Some might disagree in either direction; I view it as a component, but not the component.
