Re: Freeform Bokken Drills to Develop Aiki Flow

You are right as rain. I am stiff. My back has too much scar tissue to play hard/soft fa Ging much anymore.

That is why I returned to the Cheng Man Ching way of soft power.
The hard/soft is for the athletic, young buggers, and a few lucky old men who do not have a lifetime of scar tissue. I have played quite hard in my lifetime.

True art adapts to the physical frame you are given by Kartma at birth or acquire from the follies of life. That is why one size does not fit all.
