Re: Yoshinkan and "aiki"

My understanding is that kokyu ryoku is everything. If you can catch it aikido becomes so easy and so simple. Well that's what the top aikikai teachers used to say. So compared to that shuchu ryoku and chushin ryoku are just technical details and you know what they say about the small stuff.

Lift your arm, smile (optional) and throw. That's all.

we can make our minds so like still water, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life
