Re: Weapons training leads to good aikido.

Sorry, I didn't make my point. There are alot of ballet dancers (men, especailly) who don't dance in pointe shoes. Its still essentially ballet.
Ah my bad.

Anyway - I think that weapon training can improve your Aikido but lack of weapon training does not result in bad Aikido. Weapons are a training method and not essential.

If you like the training and you feel the benefit - keep on going.
