Lol, point taken. (about ass/radiki).
As for kiajustu, unless its taught with proper understanding of posture,timing and movement, i think all that people will end up having, is a psychological edge (which is useful none the less). I have little doubt as to your experiences and abillities in the area of Kiajustu, I trust that you can do them and have experienced them, but i do doubt the methods in which you teach them, i for one think that they should be taught at a proper dojo, not over the internet. Do you think DD became proficient at energy work over the net? I think not...Maybe he gained further understanding of other methods, but he probably (sorry if im presuming loads of stuff DD, its for the sake of this argument
) attained proficiency with energy through 'Aikido' not 'internetdo', hence i doubt your teaching (on the net) would be of much use to anyone, at least in the area of Kiajutsu...Don't get me wrong, if you lived over here in the uk, i would be the first to jump up and learn Kiajutsu from yourself, personally, in fact i would consider it a great honour, seriosuly!
You of all people should know Rad Ki is full of s***, because it neglects all posture and timing, which is key not only in Budo, but also in taijiquan and aikido, hell it posture IS qi gong. Energy will simply not flow properly if a person is not taught exactly the right postures and kame (stances, for people other than ken). As you said before, energy does follow some sorts of rules in concern with the body, ie: about trying to pull in energy through your palms, and so on (i think it was you), this also apply's to Kiajutsu. Hence to me Kia's are just 'scary's shouts' unless one has a strong grasp of taisabaki, body conditioning, timing and posture, not matter what art you do, and i think unless others see yourself and DD in motion they just won't 'get it'.
The same goes for the 'online' teaching of Kiajustu, if you made a video though, with diagrams of the meridians and correct postures with explanations and the like, perhaps , no I WOULD, EAT MY WORDS!
The area of Kiajustu is too large, and no matter what you say it is NOT simple, (unless you want to do it like an ass) it needs a comprehensive guide considering all factors, which i beleive YOU and other Veritas staff are well capable of devising. I guess its wether or not you can be bothered to pull something of worth out of your ass instead, neh?
Now that is something i beleive would benifit people no end Ken (in my humble (and most probably useless) opinion).
ps. im interested as to why you are a 'former' Bujinkan member? (Im no Bujinkan member either, i learn from a Bujinkan trained instructor, but we pledge no allegiance to it officially, as we also learn from the Genbukan as well). How long did you do it for and so on....?
*edit* err.... sorry to go off topic (awaits bannage)
