Re: Aikido minus mysticism: a step forward

To some extent all of us are guilty...

Even in my own post I admitted that I might find Monty's approach...short sighted and foolish...I think were the words. So yeah, I'm saying we all are somewhat guilty, and including myself in that bunch. Mike Lee really got on my nerves with this topic about a year ago on aikido journal...made me do some good thinking though. And David Valadez had some interesting thoughts here that influenced the way I feel as well. Something about how does what someone else does or says affect MY aikido?

Fact: it doesn't.

Best,
Ron
