Re: Hakaru Mori on the Aiki of Tenouchi

Again excellent, Chris. I enjoyed this very much.

Traditionally a gokui might be given after the student has made the ground fertile and it will be nothing dramatically new to him because he has already put in a lot of thought and sweat, but with my western-mindset I feel it would be more promising (for the student and the teacher) if the student knew about what goals to set out for and would be given that as quasi an eye-opener straight from the beginning.

It might depend on the synergy of teacher and student and cultural environment, though.

Best,
Bernd
