Why not try the webforum on http://www.aikidojournal.com/forums
, since they have subforum for Iwama style aikido? With people that actually have spent time in Iwama as uchideshis posting?
I was mainly interested in what body skills were developed in Saito's training and while I have occasionally monitored the site you recommended, I haven't spotted anyone whose opinion rings my particular bell. As I'm sure you know, often within a dojo of any art, many people are involved in details and it's hard to find people who are focused on principles. I'm sure there are people like that in Iwama, I just haven't spotted the right one yet, and Ellis mentioned the body-building, so....
Do you have any thoughts on what is being developed in Saito's suburi (other than just "good sword handling", of course)?
All the Best.
