Re: Sword work, internal skill, & "Aiki"

My meager experience with Daito ryu leads me to believe that flowing and blending may have something to do with some forms of aiki...but I think penetrating, peircing, imobilizing and who knows what else may be more appropriate to Daito ryu.

Except perhaps from a Roppokai perspective, which I have not experienced in any depth yet. Not that the other experiences were in great depth. Oh shucks...

Never mind,
