Re: Culture of Martial Mediocrity?

I understand that idea of hormat and some in aikido see the same thing, but...

Even though our path is completely different from the warrior arts of the past, it is not necessary to abandon totally the old ways. Absorb venerable traditions into this new art by clothing them with fresh garments, and build on the classic styles to create better forms. Osensei

All the 'oldtimers' had practice in judo,jj,karate,kendo, etc... Aikido IS made up of other arts... so i see no problem...
