Was Aikido minus mysticism: a long time ago in a universe far, far away ...
The dead (threads) live on. I keep expecting to see George A. Romero to chime in.
I'm just back from a month in the US. Had some excellent training with folks in Vigrinia (waves at Jim), Colorado (Hey Frank, do YOU know Jun?) and Indiana (with a whole gaggle of Midwest budo bums - got to play some Shinto Hatakage Ryu, Kodokan Judo, Yoshinkan Aikido and we cut LOTS of tatami!).
Not a BIT of mysticism anywhere to be found. Just good budo.
