Re: Long road vs short road to ki power (aiki, internal strength...)
I do not believe I can substantiate it without a time machine.
I can draw some conclusions based on my personal experience and critical thinking. I'm not going to convince anyone with that. But if you are looking for an explanation - you can try the Sherlock Holmes method.
My good friend in Japan just moved to Osaka. I won't be there for at least another year, but if I go maybe we can meet up and I'll have something I can show you myself by then. I'll even buy lunch/dinner...
