Re: Poll: What color is your aikido?
I believe Wendy Palmer Sensei asks students to try on "qualities". If I had more X what would it look like. This morning I tried on fire, earth, air and water while doing an ikkyo (while not trying to change the technique technically), uke and I found the four techniques radically different. Try it.
I believe the Linden Sensei exercise is similar using colors.
