Re: Demonstrating aiki, demontrating aikido.Same thing ?

Problem actually is: "Bodies are still bodies" doesn't really apply.
First and basic thing of internal practice is to renew your body. And to change it. The quality of your movement changes. And not only that.
I'm aware that this sounds strange but the body of someone who practices an internal art is clearly different from someone who does not. So "body" is not the reference text. Although it seems so "body" is not reliable in that sense.
I only understood and experienced that, when I started to practice internals myself.
