my mistake. asking for "a lesson" is a traditional way of issuing challenges in Chinese martial arts.

we're not too far apart, so if we ever get the chance we can meet up and share our thoughts and get some training in. i always enjoy an opportunity to see where i can improve.

T Can you give us an example of the plain-spoken descriptions that Sam Chin gives, as a comparison?


Mike Sigman
as i get time i'll be happy to look through the aikiweb archives, but i think i might find it difficult to draw direct comparisons since we have NO TECHNIQUE whatsoever, only drills, but the drills are designed to build that connection from hand to foot, to build up the connective tissue (ligaments, tendons and bones) and to develop high levels of concentration and awareness on yourself.
