natural to me
I studied Akido about 20 years ago but had to stop because my Ki was in my head and I would get too dizzy.
Then about 10 years ago my Ki moved to my heart and I rejoiced.
Perhaps soon my Ki will go where it belongs and I will lead a balanced life.
The things I learned were only openings to reality or natural processes if you will.
I find it very natural moving through a crowd extending my Ki forward to clear the way.
Ki breathing comes to me in times of stress or pain for relief, or just when I want to relax. It is very natural to breath with the entire body.
When in a strange situation being ready and never underestimating ones opponent is automatic and very natural.
So yes, after 20 years of not practicing Akido I would say it is natural to use.
