Re: Aikido as External Art -or- Where's the Chewy Center?

Quote:
So why wasn't this resisted by the teachers? Why didn't the teachers say "You clowns are missing it. Go back to the basics." I think the teachers, Ueshiba included,
Actually, I think it was resisted by Ueshiba himself...when he said "This is not my aikido!"

Best,
Ron
