Re: Is aiki a clash of forces?

On the subject of load, it strikes me that a potentially erroneous assumption is that the applied load/force is somehow fixed and large. However when redirection takes place its not only redirecting the force but changing its magnitude by affecting the ability of it to be generated (as it is limited by the structure of the person applying it)
