Aiki-math

If you're not at 100% just remember, Aikido is 90% atemi.

So you only need to be at 10% to be at 100% Aikido!

your math is a bit off. from the aikido purity (sort of like virgin) thread, we came to the conclusion that only O Sensei had it at 100% pure. the rest of us is somewhere a lot less. i understand that this sort of higher function math is rather complicated. i would suggest that we switch to differential calculus instead as it would be a lot simplier to approximate the purity as we get closer to infinity. which is the model of heaven and earth with us, aikidorks, somewhere in between.

But differential calculus was not around at the time for O'Sensei to use. I suggest we use an abacus.

O'Sensei must've been really really really old when he died. I'll have to go back to scratching marks on rocks with harder rocks to calculate his age then.....

I actually have the next 4 month to review my calc. I should maybe look at diffEQs a bit, too. And thermo. What have I done to myself?

All your problems can be solved with more atemi!

Re: Aiki-math

Yeah, there's some kind of algebra going on, where the variable in the equation can have many values. One guy says Aikido is 99% atemi, and has a set of atemi-waza. The next guy says 70% of Aikido is atemi, but a number of the first guy's atemi-waza are now iriminage and sokumen iriminage. Eventually someone says kokyunage are the most common techniques in Aikido, and to prove it demonstrates his kokyunage which are a number of gross motor movements very like, or derived from, the first guy's atemi-waza set. Someone else says gyakugamae ate atemi waza/sokumen iriminage/kokyunage is now sayunage and some of his students say there is no atemi in Aikido.

Solve for X.
