Re: easily accessible videos of Internal Training in Aikido?

The trouble with internal training is that it is, in fact, internal. Anything you can see on a video is not what you're working for.

You can see videos of the various tests--O-Sensei popping someone off a knee or shoulder, people pushing on his head and unable to push him over--but that's the demonstration, not the training.

I don't want to comment on what Endo Sensei is doing, but what he is describing in the subtitles is not internals.

Evolution doesn't prove God doesn't exist, any more than hammers prove carpenters don't exist.
