Re: Internal-Aiki.com, a new forum for discussing all the "internal" stuff

Many, not all, or maybe not what you do! I do know there is a huge difference in level of skill of a recreational swimmer and a World Class athlete! Maybe Internal Skills don't work in water!

Speaking of water, I tried to practice working the suit in the pool today, not sure if it is helpful but did feel different being surrounded by a "harder" substance than air!

I think you're misreading it too soon after you've had an introduction. But I could be wrong! Let's bet and have someone hold the money in escrow, allowing for 2 reasonably impartial judges. Bet?

Well, Kevin, I admit that you have surprised me since we met. This experimenting and trying all things out is the exact road that must be travelled. I tried to shortcut it, so I speak from experience.

Best.

Mike
