Re: Internal Power in your Aikido

Stand with your feet parallel knees locked, amrms straight out in front of you with the elbows locked then have someone meet your hands while they stand in hanmi and have them push and try to walk forward, and -they can't even lift a foot. Have them try and throw you and depending on their level either can hardly move themselves or can't even lift a foot?

Resist a 200 pound man pushing horizontally and upward on your chest while you stand there not using any technique whatsoever?
Sounds worthy of

I'm confused (but that is my perpetual state). Is MA about some some static body mechanic tricks, and why are they so hyped up in some 'internal' camps?

Have sandans and better in Judo try to throw you while you stand there and not do anything to counter them but they can't throw you?
Can we see video of you going into a judo dojo and having them try throws on you?

Knock people out with single punches
I think that is the least impressive.

Will you compete in the UFC someday? Just curious. It would be great advertisment for aikido and internal stuff.
