Re: Brawling with a friend
I do what I want and what I think is best when I train in my on dojo. When I go to my instructor's dojo and when I want to test in aikido by the known and commonly recognized organization of ASU and Aikikai...I do what I am told to do in that dojo.
To me it is really that simple. I don't question it or the methods...if I want to advance in that organization.
I don't know how much simpler it could be.
