Look in any of Gozo Shioda's books under Hiriki no Yosei (elbow power). That will give you one aikido viewpoint on the subject. It's just a start, that by itself will not give you enough information.

Add to that anything you can find on correct ways to do the rowing exercise using internal mechanics as opposed to just shoulder and arm strength.

Best,

thanks for the reply...why was it to be imparted only by oral tradition?
