Re: A defense of Aiki

I have been trying, mostly with only moderate success, to incorporate aiki training within aikido practice. Most of the experts in the field have pretty much equivocally stated that it can't be done that way, that the presence of a partner or the intent to perform technique prevents one from retaining the self awareness necessary for internal work.
Somehow one has to bring it into the technique, otherwise one will not understand how the mechanic works in conjunction with the technique. How else if not in aikido practice?
