Re: Aiki-Ken vs reality
George explains the reality of this thread very well.
As with Aikido, fixating on techniques and forms limits the outcome.
The reality is, "when he attacks I have already defeated him"
"when he attacks my sword has already cut him"
It generally takes at least 3o+ yrs of regular Aiki training before one begins to feel the sensations in this phenomenon, to be able to connect in perfect time with the Ukemi produced through the movement.
