Re: Is aiki a clash of forces?
Various people have ranges of skill when it comes to this work. I would say that any of those you mention are working on their versions of internal power, but they are different. There are others as well. The best thing for people to do is to go and feel, see who or what you like and go train with them. I would also say it is VERY wise to go train with a series of people who supposedly have something different. Some people have more tissue recruitment than others and this can be tested and felt. They will have more "whole body movement from Dantian" than others. People accent and work on power differently. If you get out there with hands on unusual people you will see what I mean. So the best way for anyone to make a decision that benefits themselves is to go test and feel.
