As long as you don't consider yourself and your Art a cut above the rest, you're in a state of Aiki.
Not sure history agrees with you. Osensei fancied aikido advanced martial art--does that constitute "a cut above"?

He was also barefacedly condescending with regard to Kano's judo, despite Kano's regard for and courtesy toward Ueshiba.
