Re: Towards a unified Aikido ?
Rank is an insignificant thing compared with knowledge. By experiencing multiple styles and points-of-view, you are gaining a better foothold on what will become "your" Aikido. Just keep an open mind, a non-judgmental attitude, and a smile on your face, and people of all styles will commend your dedication, and will help you along your path in any way they can. Aikido, regardless of style, is replete with people of good character helping each other. Such is the common spirit of Aikido. Enjoy the journey.
