Well, what vocabulary do you use?
Well, vocabulary that we all understand. The reason that it's hard to describe to someone you've never met is the same reason why it's hard (impossible, I would say) to learn Aikido from a book to any reasonable level. Could you learn to be an opera singer from a book? Probably not - but if you were already an opera singer you could probably get a fair amount of useful information from that book.

Best,

Chris
