Re: "IP/IT/IS" vs technique?

[b]What is being said is that the training to develop IP and Aiki is separate from technique training. It is a completely separate methodology and set of training exercises specifically designed to develop the internal skillset... which is then applied to technique to empower it.
As one whose Aikido has involved the study both technique (and by technique I mean technique in the specific sense, in this case Aikido technique that involves throwing and immobilization) and Ki development work as distinct subsets of the overall art, I'd say that the above statement dovetails nicely with my experience; ignoring differences in terminology and training methodology.
