Re: Internal Training Practices within the art of Aikido

Progressive Ki development comes from consistent training and Ki exercises done everyday.

Learning to first feel and then trust our centers requires constant reenforcement.

A student really starts to progress in Ki development when he or she makes the leap of relying on the principles rather than the muscle and mind power that most people rely on.

Once that huge leap has been made continual training will help the student develop a reliable way of moving that can be felt and then reclaimed when it is lost.
