Re: Poll: Is your current aikido instructor the best aikido practitioner with whom you have ever trained?
Yes, because he has brought me to the level of appreciating the subtleties, variations and variety in the art of Aikido. He has also exposed his students to the likes of Kobayashi , Igarashi , Asai, Sugawara Shihans in our dojo's seminars. He is a student of Aikido and is not afraid to expose his students to practitioners who do things "differently" from him.
Therefore to answer the question, again, for the aforementioned reasons, He is the best aikido practitioner with whom I have ever trained.
PS We also get to laugh together ...................... about my aikido !!!
