Re: Daito's Roppokai, Aiki Age, Aiki Sage and The Hammer

Thanks for your response Dan.
For me, it was nice to see someone using simple physics and constructing models that were essentially the same ones I had constructed.

I also can use muscle to knock a large nail in with one stroke. Positioning and centripetal force seem to be the most important factors. But when I do it with relaxation, the feeling is much different. Therein is what I was trying to say - albeit poorly stated as you pointed out.

Learning that a sequential form of relaxation was a big eye opener for me. And testing it with a hammer was fun because I could immediately tell the difference. It made me trust the process.

Thanks for responding
