If anybody's interested here's some discussion of the definition of "Aiki"
. Before anybody goes nuts - no, it does not contain all implications of the word as ever used, it's just some general discussion.
Thank you Chris.
The article was most enlightening.
The Kosho Ryu Kenpo monks appear to make use of geometry and numbers as well. Much of their "folding" techniques and throwing techniques are derived from their use.
Have you compared these two experiences at all? I suspect it would be an interesting endeavor.
