First, Sagawa clearly presented aiki as a "power" or a "force" that he could direct into the other person and not as anything depending on a "relationship" between two people.... to neutralize their strength and make them unable to apply their strength against him....[by entering] the opponent's body imperceptibly and [disrupting] their sense of gravitation, making their nervous system unable to respond to his physical movement...
David, that seems like a clear description of hua jin (neutralizing jin) to me... which, as you know, is an aspect of the one jin.

a discussion of a very unique approach to aiki and how to develop and use it.
Unique how?
