Re: Transmission, Inheritance, Emulation 10

Well, Prof. Stevens does teach a kata called sho chiku bai, and strangley enough, it is also used as a jumping off point for a more free-style aiki-kempo (sp?).

After all, you have to start somewhere, but once the basis is there, you may perhaps be able to "transcend"? As I remember, there were 3 sets, each one a little more involved.

Best,
Ron
