Translated words and meanings

The actual translated meanings might not be what we are using right now. Consider this thread:

http://www.aikiweb.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15055

and this one

http://www.aikiweb.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15054

So, if taisabaki isn't just body movements and timing isn't about actual timing and feelings aren't about well, feelings ...

If they are about core structural body manipulations, controlling an opponent's ki and intent, then, that changes quite a bit of the translated works ...

and not only that, but it starts to make sense of all these threads about structure and aiki ...

and ties them all into what some of the greats were saying and doing.
