Re: Internal Power (AIKI?)-- Players and Haters

To me "kokyu" is proper use and alignment of the body. This is not an exotic thing, but something we can all get a handle on.

To me, many seem to be calling some form of advanced body skill (what I would call advanced kokyu) "Aiki".

Seems that we all agree that "Aiki" is more then body skill. Kokyu is the first step in making "Aiki", but only a step. So why call kokyu "Aiki"?
