You should know that the musogi breathing technique, taught in many aikido schools, is very close to zazen, the breathing technique taught in many zen schools. And that some have called aikido, 'moving zen'.
Many amazing developments can come from practicing these arts.
you know, you give me an idea. i am thinking of forming a furniture moving company with the name "Moving Zen" and hiring a bunch of aikidoka to do the work. they might move the furniture and they might not, but that's zen.
