Re: Ki Usage and O-Sensei: A Question

Because the founder learned all of this instinctively. His subconscious learned and performed. His conscious self could not teach, only demonstrate. That is the traditional way to learn, through practice and observation.
Then why did Tohei and Abe go to other teachers to get information, Ted? Why didn't they just "practice and observe" to get all from O-Sensei. Obversely, why did Abe and Tohei's teachers actively teach anything? Why didn't all those students just "relax completely" and learn all "instinctively"? I.e., your answer makes no real sense in relation to the question.
I know there are other ways to learn this besides through the Ki Society. However I've always been aware of this paradox that I've seen people caught in. Am I on a journey of self-discovery, or am I just re-inventing the wheel?
For all the Ki and kokyu things, you're attempting to re-invent the wheel from cryptic directions, Ted. There's easier ways to do it.
