Re: Push Test to Nikkyo


What is the objective of this type of exercise?

Why do you believe it to be valuable?

I would argue that you do physically move your body.

How are you using that term?

How do you see it as being different than a "traditional" nikyo?

Thank you for posting videos, by the way. It really helps with the discussion. I don't know why there has been resistance towards doing so.
