Re: VoE: AWASE - The Principle of AIKI

Aiki vs Awase.
Modern Aikido=awase
I think you just repeated yourself without adding anything new.

I'll do the same but more concisely:

Not Aiki vs. Awase. Awase/musubi is a component of takemusu aiki.

Ueshiba = Aiki = no argument but you are trying to make one out of an example of Osensei using kokyu ryoku (another component) on Tenryu.

Modern Aikido = all kinds of awase (go no sen, sen no sen, OODA loop, compliance etc).
