Re: Internal Power/Strength (IS/IP) in relation to non-human contact

Dear All,
I often marvelled at the aikido of Tamura/Sekiya/Yamaguchi Semsei for the sheer economy of movement in their waza and the effectiveness of their waza.Younger guy could sweat bllod and use tons of energy with poor results while these middle aged men, slightly built could train for hours without breaking sweat.I think these men simply developed their bodies in a similar [but different] type of body model than the one where the lady could toss bales of hay around all day.Other examples like weight lifters,gymnasts and dancers seem to be able to perform incredible physical feats which few can emulate.Cheers, Joe
