Hi Chris

I am also interested in exploring any worms you care to bring out into the open

Could be educational.

Well - I already laid it out, in essence, in the Tohei quote. The basic difference in the conception of Aiki as something that occurs between two people (as Tohei said that Kisshomaru believed), or as something that occurs wholly within yourself.

The difference is, IMO, very profound, and at the root of many of the problems in conventional Aikido today - but maybe it deserves a separate thread...
