If a teacher were to explain his methods for developing internal strength to his students, but did not present these methods within the context of developing internal strength, is it really fair to say he "outlined his method quite clearly?"
Interesting ... there are students of my instructor that have trained more or less daily for 20-25 years under this instruction and very clearly they do not move the same way and still get constant instruction and correction on myriad details. And we are not really even talking about the internal stuff but 'regular' aikido stuff!

So, yeah, entirely possible, even quite likely the norm.

Ultracrepidarianism ... don't.
