Re: Using ki-skills for "aiki" in Daito-Ryu
Oh, let me clarify something real quick:
"Fascia" is an umbrella term for the soft connective tissues of the body. They are classified as three general types:
- "Superficial" fascia that wraps around the body,
- "Visceral" fascia that suspends the organs,
- And "deep" fascia that interpenetrates and surrounds the muscles and bones.
When I'm talking about creating a tensegrity structure, I'm mostly talking about contracting the deep fascia along the primary muscle-tendon channels.
The visceral fascia I don't know about, but the superficial definitely has a role in the greater internal phenomenon. But that's a separate topic.
