Re: Weapons training leads to good aikido.

Well, I would say it depends on the training. A person who just does forms - especially solo forms and/or forms where no contact is ever made - is going to lose against a person who trains within spontaneous training environments on a regular basis (e.g. a kendo person).

Perhaps that was Mr. Reading's point.
