Re: Int. Vs. Ext - resisting a push

I'm in agreement here.

We could structure the discussion about specific ki tests for example, but in the end there would be no real difference as we would be talking about the same subject matter. Calling it a ki test instead of a push test matters little, though perhaps calling it a push test lets us get away from any preconceptions of how some people may be performing the tests.
Even if you stick to ki tests and try to use the more aikido-familiar terms (extend ki) etc, at some point you have to discard that terminology to attempt to discuss them on a modern level that people can make sense of. If we start a thread here called "how to extend ki" nothing in that thread is going to be aikido specific, but you can't argue that the topic is 100% aikido related.
