Re: Ever changing Aikido

But isnīt there a huge difference between "changes" and "changes".

My understanding and execution of ex shomen uchi ikkyo will always change due to (hopefully) better understanding and training.
But what I think that the thread starter is going thru is a change in the way basic motions is made, due to the fact that Hitohiro Saito sensei is putting his own twist on what his father taught him.
And when basics is a large part of training, changes in the way basics is performed is a big change.

A little like if the top ranking Yoshinkan instructors started to change the way kihon dosa is performed.
