So having been to Japan and had limited practice with weapons. Do you feel that your aikido is good and complete?
Good question.

Yes <simple answer>

However, I wouldn't say that my training is complete since it is an ongoing process, but I do think that it is comprehensive and now if I was to pick up a weapon my weapon work would be better than it was 12 years ago.

There are other things I would also like to add to my repetoire to make my Aikido a little broader, but I think the core is what has been focused on here and I don't think I would want it any other way... <longer answer>

Peter...thanks for those 3 points. Illuminating.

cheers,
