Re: How aiki are we?
I just find it frustrating that everything we have to do just because we practice aikido needs to be "aiki" regardless of what the definition is. It seems to me to be a cop-out when people don't like seeing disagreements occur and are unwilling to negotiate the differences. "That's not aiki." "You're not aiki." Etc. I just think it doesn't matter whether we're "aiki" whatever that heck that is, but just that we're respectful to one another.
