Keep in mind that my teacher was the former head of Ki Society in the US. That being said, much of my experiences with Ki Society folks is that they went with the "fluff" and threw out the "stuff." By that, I mean that many of them could not handle a dedicated attack regardless of how strong they thought that their ki was and how much they thought that they led with intention. Some of my solo exercises in my own personal routine are still done by Ki Society members, so that I still believe strongly in the value of what can be gained.
I am with you on all that - my Ki Society experience was all oversees during the mid seventies where they taught the 'stuff' and not the 'fluff' - I cannot comment on any US Ki group since I have not trained with any of them.


I did not know Mike was a tailor!
Inside joke for those that follow Mike's posts and training topics - 'Suit' is a metaphor Mike uses for training the Aiki body, etc

Look forward to seeing you on the mats in the near future.
Yes, it was good seeing you and your wife again up at Dan's - I hope to hook-up with you again soon.
