Re: ki testing...emphasis on both uke and nage getting stronger

Thank you Carsten
I don't think anyyone who has stood in a room with me has heard me claim this is my work. Instead I make a very strong argument for a pedogogy from India to China to Japan. It is the quality and consistency of this work, that has produced a never ending stream of "giants" who got it. And I don't consider myself..... a giant.

Sadly, the other "constent" are those in the martial arts who are convinced they get it and don't. They are just going through the motions doing waza thingies and kidding themselves that they are "soft." It can't be helped. The truth has never made a cross section of people either comfortable or happy.In the martial arts it is worse as the vast majority of people in the martial arts really have no idea about the higher level work.
