First of all, I think the addition of columns is a great addition to AikiWeb.

Mr. Clark, I really enjoyed what you had to say in the article, especially the portion dealing with Tsuneo Nishioka sensei's "expandable cup." I once had an instructor give me the "empty your cup" line, and it didn't sit too well with me. The reason it didn't sit well with me is that I thought "emptying my cup" would be disrespectful to my previous sensei.

I think a great deal of wisdom was present in your article. While training I will try to keep in mind the principles of shoshin and nyunanshin, and just "walk the path."

Thank you for sharing this.
