Concepts like "ki" or "flowing" leave me completely indifferent right now...
One of the guys in our dojo went to watch a friend of his in an aikido demonstration of another style. Afterward his friend asked what he thought. Our guy said it was pretty cool but to be honest he didn't see much blending. The other guy responded "what's blending?".

"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."
