How to do something? There is simply doing or not doing. Rob, Mike, Dan and I agree on one thing, at least -- DOING anything does not happen here. The HOW of what is done can be discussed in terms of the principles underlying what is done. Understanding the principles does happen here if approached openly.

The only way to understand anything is find it yourself. Since I do not write for your benefit, how I come across is of no consequence to me, but apparently concerns you more than it should.

"How" is about extending what we are doing to other things than what we have done. That is what I am doing. Some may find this way suitable, others not; if not, what I write and think about is not intended for you. I leave you whatever path seems best to you, with my blessings. A mental landscape that can interest itself in a theory involving waves, directly invites my observations. One can only pretend to imagine angular momentum as a fetish and pollution to that discussion, unless from a position of ignorance. Experience alone is limited by that experience. Experience informed by principle leads to novel experience. Takemusu.
Blah blah blah blah. Blah blah. Blah blah blah. And now it's "Rob, Mike, Dan and I". Uh, no. Rob posts videos, Mike tries to explain what he does, Dan Harden has people meet up with him. I'm betting they all have skills, and that you for all your babble having nothing that's different than Aikido in Anytown. So what good does a chemical analysis of Ueshiba's urine sample do anybody else? Should we talk about mitochondria and aerobic vs anaerobic metabolism in Aikido practice? Diet maybe? This thread is about Yoseikan Budo and a point of interest is the origin and/or any commonality between it and what Rob and Mike talk about. At this point there was some idle curiosity as to whether you realize you have a pathological need to fluff your feathers inappropriately in public, but I'm past that. *PLONK*
