Re: Using less force on a smaller person w/o being patronizing

I don't think it's useful to get into a discussion about physics equations because that's probably not going to help your aikido to improve. Thinking about not using force definitely will help your aikido to improve. Perhaps I should have said conscious force but I thought it was clear from the original post. I thought it was worth clarifying that if you use [conscious] force you are blocking yourself and certainly blocking your growth.

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