Re: VoE: AWASE - The Principle of AIKI

Wouldn't you think at some point the community would be able to answer questions like
  • Why did the founder talk about solo work in discussions of aiki?
  • Why did the founder do Solo training all the time?
  • What were his goals?
  • How did he get such crazy power?
  • How come no one else has it?
  • Was he a one-off?
  • Why did he then point to and use exact terminology for power building from china that also matches Koryu use of the same terminology?
  • How come?
  • Why?
  • What does it mean?
  • Did other people who know about it have power like Ueshiba?
  • Why....why...yes!! They did!!!
  • Why?
  • What is this stuff that others know about?
  • It must be important.
  • How do we do it?

I think those are questions worth consideration by anyone in their own art, but with a founder like Ueshiba? All the more reason to do so.
