Re: Video definitions, "Aiki" and other terms.

I would like to hear more from the Ki society people (and all off shoots there of), and how they define "Aiki". And some videos!!
Coming from Ki Society, I can only remember one time (my memory being what it is) where someone (a visiting instructor) ventured a description on "Aiki". He said something to the effect that, "aiki is sneaky". At the time, what he showed paid less attention to timing as it did with what (I thought) he had going on within himself, and what happened to uke as a result of that. In place of what many people here refer to aiki, in Ki Society, you'll typically hear, "mind and body coordination". How many people actually have it or knows what it means is something else entirely. I realize I'm only just now scratching the surface.
