I would'nt say that this bothers me, but I'm still a bit preoccupied by the fact that seemingly, all a´kido styles are not made (or considered) equal.
That said, I'm wondering why there aren't any effort put in unifying and consolidating all a´kido styles. Or are there ?
That would'nt mean to throw away all particularities pertaining to each style, but could we at least provide a unified cursus upon which each "style" would build on ?
You could start you own effort toward unification. Go to workshops and seminars taught by aikidoka of any association, and take what you learn back to your dojo. Share it with your fellow classmates.
Do it all.
