Thank you for your erudite information, sir.

May I add, as a caveat, that individuals who studied under an aikidoka and then decided to teach "aiki-jutsu" or whatever variant by doing the techniques harder are generally NOT legitimate.

Check their lineage, experience, and character carefully.

I DO study a variant of what could be called "aiki-jutsu" but it is a mix of older jujutsu styles with weapon and striking arts.
My sensei knows and studies and seeks more about his lineage and is very honest about his roots.

Beware the teacher who becomes offended when you ask. They should be eager to tell you.

Best to know as exactly as possible what you are getting, particularly if you are a practical type seeking a "street-smart" art.
