I am reminded of an aikido Shihan, incensed at the on line commentary of a guy who challenged him. He flew to meet him and confront him.
His Mom answered the door. "Can I help you?"
He was thirteen years old.

If there is a seminar in London I will try and attend and hopefully all will make sense and I will be a convert
Until then I wont make a whisper Tom

I say this at every seminar: "If I can go outside and get any person I find, to come in here and they feel just like you. What does that say about you?"
Even gym rats and kettle bell guys, once they touch me and I test them, and they see all their power...not helping them much to throw me... they get interested pretty fast. I really is just a different way to organize and work out the whole body.
The Asians knew what they were doing when they were wearing armor all day and both carrying and using long pole weapons. They were just distinctly uninterested in teaching foreigners. As Takeda said to Sagawa. "Your solo training is for you, don't show that to people! And NEVER to foreigners! They're too big already and it will give them too much of an advantage."
Your other point, Doc is pretty clear as well. Once you start to get this and you feel yourself changing? You know its different, and you know, you know. You don't really have to be told. Why? Because everyone else feels like you used to feel.
And I know, that you know, that you know, and I know it too!

That seminar was good, I could hardly move the next day - Steve is terrifying!
Dan - Sam Chin has students in my area. Is his method similar or comparable to achieving the kind movement / connectivity / power that you teach?
What are the similarities and differences, if any?
