Re: Takemusu

A budo that brings life instead of death, through the principle of joining energies. Wouldn't that be almost exactly what Nishio sensei always said about aikido?

Indeed that is what Nishio sensei always said. In line with that another phrase he commonly used was "We have hands in order to create not to destroy.." I think the interpretations of Takemusu Aiki that you give is as close as it can get :-) (at least to my understanding ;-))
