I think part of what I learned in AiKiDo is that, because the body expresses the mind, then physically techniques feel different when they are done with philosophical aiki. Simply, they work better. Softness, if it does not come from within, does not feel like the same softness to the uke, and does not (at least for me) bring about the same powerful technique that I can achieve when my phsyical and philosophical aiki are working together.

Yours in Aiki
Opher
