Re: I Need Aikido ?'s Answered PLEASE!
"""Where as some arts offer a comprehensive "if he does this you do that, if he does this variation you do that variation" type approach, Aikido offers a series of exercises to help you internalise the conept of "aiki" which may then be brought to bear in an endless variety of situtions. It's about accepting and leading energy."""
I wonder what Aikido training would be like, and how quiet naysayers of Aikido would be, if Aikido schools changed the way they do attack variations? Lots of people say Aikido isn't effective (I don't believe that myself) and it may have to do with their "old school" approach. But whatever...
