Yes indeed. Now whenever you hear someone saying it as an advanced martial artist you will have an idea of where they are coming from. Peace.G.

I have heard the ``empty mind `` analogy used many times over my 55 years of Aikido – I have studied at length with many ``advanced martial artists `` such as Kenshiro Abbe – Tadashi Abe – Masahilo Nakazono – M Noro – TK Chiba – T Otani – M Harada – N Tamura – H Tada – H Kobayashi.

In all those years and all those great teachers they never explained such enlightenment.

I must be honest, the dan grades at the Hut Dojo would discuss the empty body as a matter of some importance after a previous night of a few beers and a pretty mean curry..
