Re: What is "IP" discussion of Internal power.

Ok, so here's a question, flat out, straight up. Do the IP folk think Hiroshi Ikeda sensei has it or a part of it? (We'll leave Lee's protestations of having better breathing aside for the moment...) He's visiting in December, he's talked about internal stuff the last few times he's been here, can I save myself a chunk of change by cornering him and getting some of the goods from him?
Knowing very little of Ikeda Sensei, I can only go by what I've heard--that he is working with IP. I can't say to what extent, but it seems he's going that way. But it also seems that it's "aikido first" with him and you might not get as "pure" a take on IP itself. Again, I don't know much about him. Just what I've read and some video clips I've seen.

I'd still find another seminar to go to, but no reason not to take advantage of an opportunity that is right in my lap.
Absolutely. I'd just say to be sure to meet up with Dan or Mike or Ark or Forrest or someone with a reputation for solid IP in itself.

Good luck.
