Re: Takemusu Aiki in Systematic Teaching?

And the weakness that many styles share is that without some level of competition based testing, how do you KNOW that what you think works, does indeed work? Not of the competition mind frame myself, it's not so important to me personally, but I can understand why some would want to go further down that road. The nice thing is that even when there is no formal place for that kind of testing, informal get togethers can often be used for that sort of thing.

Best,
Ron
