Re: Dan, Mike, and Aikido

That is of course entirely possible but please bear in mind that I did Tai Chi before aikido and am familiar with a lot of what has been described by Mike Sigman. I also cross train regularly so I'm not particularly inclined to think I'm misconstruing their words.

As to the rudeness issue I agree with you totally as I've had similar experiences meeting people in the real world who I've first encountered online. However I do still find myself wondering who appointed these guys as chief redeemers and saviours of aikido. My own teacher has said often enough that that task is one for Doshu really, until he leads the way the rest of us just have to muddle along as best we can.
