Weapons are integral part of aikido system, not something outside of system
Actually...it would appear that they are not an integral part of the Yoshinkan hombu dojo Aikido system, even though they are of yours.

The comment about cross-training was tongue-in-cheek, I admit. But it was to make the point that in what I have studied in Japan does not include weapons as an integral part of the curriculum.
