What do you mean by slack? Of course I know what you're writing about since we both study the same style. But an average Aikikai student wouldn't.
Is there an esoteric definition of "slack" that you use? I read what Craig wrote and (I believe) I understood him and his use of the term "slack". I could be wrong, of course.
What I'm really pointing out is the different experience between Shin Shin Toitsu Do and Aikikai Aikido. Trying to find a common ground and expressing that understanding seems insurmountable at times.
The times I have trained with folks like Kashiwaya sensei or the late Simcox sensei, I was able to get a lot out of what they were saying. I don't think I would have gotten such had I not been on at least some common ground...
