Capacitance, inductance, reactance... are properties that describe behavior or electric charges and electronic components in electronic circuits. These properties are explained and bound by specific and proven mathematical formulas. These properties do not apply to any behavior involving mechanical movement or other macroscopic phenomena. Your theories, borrowed or not, would improve by using more generally descriptive and common terms rather than borrowing specific terminology from science/engineering, IMO.
Your culturally inherited resistance to borrowing and relating descriptive terms from electrical energy to Aikido is noted. Your Aikido will improve after realizing newtonian reductionist thought is never holistic.
