Re: Finding Aiki - and Aikido - in Hawaii
Keep up the great posts...
We are also having this "empty feeling" as we realize how incomplete is our aikido waza (and the idea of what it could be like). In some ways, it has given us a new perspective on how great aikido was and a path back to "is". In other ways, it gives us the confidence to give back what is not ours (to claim as an art) and focus on what is. In yet other ways, it puts pressure to better teach aiki because now there is a method of verifying what is going on. I believe all of these things to be positive for aiki training.
