Re: Process or Result

The process is important. But you cannot really know what it was, or live it for yourself.

Your best bet is to review the information that has been put out there on how Ueshiba lived and how he trained. A bit is known about each. Seek out people who have put a lot of work into their own training, and use this to enhance your own myth of Osensei and develop your own process.

If the man believed his whole life and training history was a template worth passing on he would have done so.
