Re: learning 2 arts at the same time

The kendo and aikido basic stance are quite different. I often have trouble in my iaido training because I keep going into a kind of aikido hanmi. Nishio Sensei and Hikitsuchi Sensei both adopted a kind of kendo stance for their aikido. I suppose their students would have much less a problem doing both.
