Re: Aikido Works

To all the Aikidoka that do know how to practice breakfalls and koshinage, please excuse me as I mean no disrespect to Aikido in general, just the watering down of the martial aspect of it.

I am not an expert in the history of Aikido but I find it hard to imagine that people trained with Ueshiba and were not able to do breakfalls until shodan.
