One is what type of body type do you believe works best in Aikido.
A soft, smooth, connected and permeable body.

Two is what seems to be the dominant spirutal belief system of the Japanese masters these days?
I have practiced with only one Japanese shihan. He is very interested in Taoism as far as I understand. Because Taoist body work is about getting a soft, smooth, connected and permeable body. And Taoist spirituality depends on developing such a body.
He is also doing zazen I think.
