Re: Towards a unified A´kido ?
I must say that I agree totaly with Ron. Aikido for health, Aikido for martial arts, Aikido for sports, Aikido for MMA, Aikido for religion everyside has its pros and cons.
Aikido purists may say that this is what is the cancer of Aikido. But everyone has its own goal everyone has its own interest.
If aikido will be only one "unified aikido" in the future, maybe it is a sign that Aikido has found the ultimate "only one truth".
But I am sure that Aikido will have lost some of its richness.
Personaly I think it is our luxury to enjoy the differences.
