Also, can folks please explicitly include discussions of aikido in threads within the "Internal Training in Aikido" forum?
Unfortunately discussing internal training in Aikido typically means that we don't discuss aikido as it is commonly practiced at all. There's no way to avoid that though. You shouldn't look at this any differently than a big thread discussing goals in Tomiki's exercises or Misogi. Neither would be commonly considered aikido, but they would be allowed all the same.
