The Aiki Singularity

An interesting new book from Scott Meredith on internal power conditioning and Aiki that connects Yukiyoshi Sagawa to the internal martial arts of China - available on Amazon.

Best,

Chris

Re: The Aiki Singularity

I've read quite a bit about Sagawa, but the Chinese connection is usually downplayed. What's supposed to be the big connection?

I'm totally grabbing this book, but does anyone have a spoiler? lol

Re: The Aiki Singularity

It's ok. Lots of specifics, but still, IMO, vague specifics without having hands on a good teacher. Still a worthy read and a good effort.

Sometimes I think that the really missing ingredient is enough time spent establishing agreed upon definitions for "common knowledge."
