Splendid comment!

Something for the floppy bunnies ;
In one of the interviews compiled by Aikido Journal and on YouTube here : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-Sugag-Ncs
Ueshiba is subtitled as saying "One time I carried a weight of over 1,200 pounds" when referring to his physical power.
Whether true or a fib, it is clear he once thought of himself as VERY STRONG INDEED...

We may argue that without becoming VERY STRONG in the first place his later perceived internal skills might not have been able to be achieved.
