Being blunt is ok as is the right to question I am just bored with trying to explain myself in terms where you get "it" I have done my best and fallen short in your and some others eyes...

Let's review... Aikido's internal strength comes from

Misogi
Tenkan
Irimi

Ohhh and it's important to learn how to relax...LOL

Not good enough of an explaination for an accountant I guess... You want the technical details...I looked back to through my archives and other than doing what O'Sensei did and following the encouragement of Shoji Nishio to look outside for ways to better Aikido...I don't know how many times I can repeat myself...

Now if you want a technical explaination then perhaps you should wait until I attend a seminar with one of the fine folks here...Then maybe I can gather enough information to "proof my arguement" in writing...

Wow... just wow... I ask about internal strength in Aikido™ and you quote Zen...
Wow just wow I guess you'll go to bed tonight knowing you've slayed another windmill in your quest for the truth of "it" or perhaps someday you'll come to understand the real meaning behind this parable.
