Re: Transmission, Inheritance, Emulation 7
Thanks for very interesting articles.
Now I understand better why some Japanese aikidoka say that aikido can’t be fully understood by non-Japanese. May be you, as long term resident in Japan, can realize all these social, political, historical and economical implications, but for most of us in Occident, we can’t. It is kind of scary. Looks like really every aikidoka have to go to Japan for few years to feel this culture on his own skin. The theoretical knowledge from the articles as yours is only the top of iceberg….
