Re: New Feature: AikiChat!

John Stevens has one. I'd do a Google of the two terms.

It's listed in the back of one of his books.

Re: Kotodama

I don't think that just knowing the "sounds" of the kotodama would do any more for you than the "sounds" of the "I Don't Love You Anymore Blues, Part II Yodel". The pressures and tensions of the sounds are the critical things and how they vibrate the "ki"... so just making the sounds won't do anything.

My 2 cents.

Re: Kotodama

I'm not convinced that the sounds are nearly as important as physical training (otherwise wouldn't we have a whole science of it, or have scientists somehow overlooked this great funding opportunity).

---understanding aikido is understanding the training method---
