Recently i've discovered some new moves as options.
How i got them?
Perhaps this Aikido lesson with bokken was a transmission that fell deeply into my psyche, and after years of wait, trained body matured and integrated some unconscious 'programming' into fighting style.
I found that if/when i try, real knife, real stick and perhaps even imagined sword moves are easy to pick up... as well as unarmed ones. I seem to have intuition for such.
Perhaps that body/mind conditioning during childhood training is recipe for a success in Martial Arts in older life. That would explain 'rationally' spiritual experiences and longing toward Martial Arts.
Does this suffice and real training is unneccessary?
I am sure that not.
