Are you talking about Seigo Yamaguchi Sensei? If so when did you participate in his seminars?
I think you need a little more hands on experience with these types of teachers before you get so full of yourself. Frankly Szcepan what you don't know would fill volumes. I would try to be more tactful with you but frankly I think it is lost on you. Your opinions are inflammatory and tactless. Perhaps it is due to poor communication skills on my part but you seem to be opinionated, snappish, and critical beyond reason and knowledge.
I hope you are doing well. I don't think ppl are very interested to read about my personal qualities, instead, I propose go back to the topic, if you allow me?
I wonder, why every time, when somebody who has chosen to start aikido where O sensei finished, can't find any rational argument to back up this strange approach, he does personal attacks, instead of discussing a topic.
You are a shihan, may be you can explain me, why you still consider aikido something that is lacking martial element?
I'm very interested how I can learn spiritual dimension from such demo?
How it is possible to do practice 'ludique' of the Budo, as another shihan and direct student of S.Yamaguchi sensei repeats at almost every his seminar?
