Re: Poll: Would you consider aikido without a physical practice component to still be
I like the points that Chris Li brings out. The study of Heiho is certainly not a physical one, is it?
I used to think the only way to keiko in aikido was the physical practice, and I still think that is usually the case...but I feel like I have seen exceptions to that rule.
One notable exception was a very fine gentleman named Ubaldo who used to post on Aikido Journal. I still miss him. I think he did aikido.
