Re: Secret / Hidden techniques in Aikido?

As is also mentioned in Total Aikido, *everything* comes from your understanding of the basic principles.

To the best of my knowledge there are no "secret" techniques (but then, otherwise they wouldn't be secret...), but as in all arts (and crafts, though the difference between those two is rather artificial IMO) there are feats you won't be able to pull off without thorough knowledge and lots of first-hand experience (=practice) under your belt.

To do is to be. (Nietzsche) ... To be is to do. (Descartes) ... Do be do be do. (Sinatra).
