Re: Aikido training - Why are you searching for internal strength?

Wow...off I went to spend time with my grandson and lots of replies.
Ineteresting thoughts all....
To Shadowfax...it doesn't bother me.
To Chris: I needed to learn about self defense not internal strength.

To Mark:
I like the distictions between inner and internal.
Since those (Sumo and Judo) are contests, they will never happen for me. I will just continue to trust that my development of correct feeling is going as it should be.
I think there is plenty of internal strength development going on inside some Aikido dojos...You are welcome to visit ours.
