Re: Poll: Does aikido contain any physical principles not present in any other budo?
I hope you are having a good day. I don't believe you have "ticked off" anybody!
Anyway, my take on the question of physical principals was my "real" reply to the postings. Yes, Jigoro Kano espoused some of the aikido spiritual philosophy, as well as most other martial arts. But I still stand by my quote that aikido is what it is due to O'Sensei's spiritual revelations that he had. (The Golden Light, etc....)
This is my thoughts on it: I may be totally wrong. I may be somewhat wrong. I may not be wrong.
So what? It shouldn't bother anybody!
