Quoting other peoples ideas is easy and for some, it's all they've got. They usually will not last even 30 seconds against someone who actually knows what it really means.

Budo is funny, here is thread about testing and making people stronger....that can't answer its own premise.
Why Budo clothing?
Why weapons?
Why joint locks?
Why attacks?
Why Uke /Nage?
Why use the words make people stronger?

Here I'll quote others..

Everyone talks
you shugyo
years go by
people still talking
then you get up to demonstrate
then everyone knows the truth

Sorry Dan you talking about yourself as you quote others far more than most.You even finish with one.

Your questions are easily answered so I don't get your point.

Ki testing is good there's no more to say about it, it's straightforward and Aikido. All about harmony.
