Re: Poll: Is there such a thing as "bad" aikido to you?

Both answers are the same.
Of course, there are aikido students and teachers, who perform aikido without effectivesness, ithout sensitivity or with bad attitude, eg violently. And you can call this "bad aikido".

But in reality, if it is bad, it is not aikido.

Those guys (including me) have either not gine far enough on their way or just took the wrong track - in the meaning of DO.

Best regards
