Re: effectiveness: experience on learning

After a quick look in the dictionary, one could legitimately define "martially effective" as capable of producing a result suitable for a warrior.


For me effectiveness starts with body awareness.

But this is just the first step, because effectiveness will always be in relation to something. Effectiveness depends on our ability to relate to what is happening in the moment.

The more appropriate our actions, the better our results.

"Through aiki we can feel the mind of the enemy who comes to attack and are thus able to respond immediately." - M. Mochizuki
