Hence my statement (and Ueshiba's) that aiki is not awase.
Hence, Shirata dividng the models as well, stating "Place the immovable body (aiki as opposing forces) an invincible position." (awase).
Hence, my phrase "Aiki in me before aiki between thee and me"
Maybe "Aiki in me before awase between me and thee"? Put a bow on it and we are ready for the next step. The peanut gallery has now spoken.

"In my opinion, the time of spreading aikido to the world is finished; now we have to focus on quality." Yamada Yoshimitsu

Ultracrepidarianism ... don't.
