Re: Ever changing Aikido
From what i've seen, most teachers change their techniques or modify their principles over time. Sometimes it is a big change, other times barely noticeable. Your own aikido also tends to change over time, mine certainly has, mostly from a combination of studying with different instructors, whats suited towards my body type/height/weight and then some of my own little stylistic tendancies. The 'standard' nikkyo that I use nowadays is nothing like the 'standard' nikkyo i used 2 years ago, and I doubt it will be the same in another 2 years time, or I at least hope so, becuase otherwise I wont have progressed. Thats the beauty of aikido innit, its ever changing.
