That's cool, Erick, but are suggesting that you do sword as a prelude to Aikido then?
Complementary. I used the word, even. A host of errors in aikido technique are corrected by putting a sword in the student's hands and performing the technique as a cut.

I don't want to get too deeply into cutting with a sword or the release of energy in strikes, etc.,
Probably wise of you.

No. Evidently you don't.
