Re: Yoshinkan and "aiki"

...I haven't seen as much Yoshinkan as I've seen Ki-Society, but it would be interesting to watch the Yosh guys get a little less rigid and a little more ki.
I have seen Inoue hanshi and Chida shihan in action without the standard Yoshinkan kamae. Static in shizendai (natural posture), they could throw the uke effortlessly with a flip of the hand. They could have been easily mistaken for being Aikikai shihans.
