The answer....is.....physics and mechanics, but physics and have no practical training model to get you there. They ALWAYS fail. The Asians had a well developed method using metaphor and solo training. The Asians created the higher level arts.

Well there you go. I was going to post that you could have several pages easily on the biological, physical, physiological, mental, chemical, mechanical processes involved in say hitting a baseball. And why a 90 mph fastball appears as big a watermelon to some hitters, but until you go to the batting cage and face a 90 mph fastball your just Bob Costas. A lot may think they are doing aiki or their "version" of it, but it does not explain 1000 strikeouts or the "Babe Ruths" of aiki.

A day will dawn when you will yourself laugh at your effort. That which is on the day of laughter is also now.
