Another great essay by a "voice of experience" with little or no discussion.....perhaps you've said it all but I fear that, at least on this forum, people simply are not interested.....
Thank you George Sensei,
What George is discussing becomes very obvious when you have been physicaly training hard enought under supervision of right instructor. His conclusions are the natural result of such training. Unfortunatly, it must come from inside for everyone, you can't impose it or even advice it. This is "internal" knowlegde.
On this forum most ppl are interested how to do correctly sankyo or can aikido be used in streetfighting. And then they dare to lecture what aikido is....
Can you see a gap of experience? LOL
