hey i was just curious. what "style" is steven seagal into??
Seagal is Aikikai (last time I checked). Reynosa is Aikikai...he has a formal relationship with Hombu Dojo in his own right.
Concerning your "ki" experiences: I'd strongly suggest moving those into a more dynamic environment. I've found that the whole concept of "ki tests" changes dramatically when an uke attacks sincerely (i.e. as in, throwing everything he has at nage). In that regard, this 5'7", 175lb. man has "felt" ki when he regularly throws everything he has at his sempai..."felt" as in my backside on the tatami and/or in painful jointlock...depsite my best efforts to fight against.
