Re: Internal Training for Aikido Weapons

before go into weapons, the main question would be, how much have you done in regard to IP/aiki empty handed? and how long? until you have developed enough of IP/aiki into your body, looking at weapon stuffs might mess up the training progression. one of the major danger with IP/aiki training is "too much, too soon". folks get too excited and they end up doing too many things at the same time. been there, done that. my unsolicited advice is to pick one or two things to work on for a year or two, then move on to the next one or two. it's one of those thing where you want to do "one thing well vs 1000 things mediocre".
