Re: Focal points for solo training

Yes. It will be very interesting to see what it looks like 5-10 years from now, when we have dojos full of people like Az, who have never not done Aikido with aiki.

Already we have people coming in from outside saying things like one guy recently, "How'd you do that? I just touched you and I'm already off balance." Hah. Secret ninja techniques.

Every now and then I'm working on this stuff with a junior student, and they get it, and I think, "Damn, why am I helping you with this? You should have to put in 20 years like I did."

Sorry Az, didn't mean to let that slip.
