Henry Akins discusses the concepts of connection and disconnection

Hi found these videos on youtube where Henry Akins discusses Rickson Gracie's concepts of connection and disconnection. Thought the forum might find them interesting

Yeah, the same concepts applied to the ground. It's refreshing to see the commonalities in principles of different arts expresses rather than looking for differences

IMO, the art is in the principles not the waza. Connection to them, connection to yourself. Connection / disconnection are what is being named with the "Ju" Jutsu and the "Ai" kido imo.
