My mistake... "practicing" Buddhist. Perhaps less "Buddhist" and more practice might be in order. How is my opinion of the aforementioned publicly available and published material a "personal snipe"?
By all means defend the material... but there's no need to get defensive about the man and take it personally. Insinuations regarding experience or lack thereof is neither warranted nor "on topic".
Sorry I simply asserted you did not have enough experience with Nishio Sensei's Aikido to accurately assess the materiel. it was not meant to be an insinuation on my part.
My Apologies again.
Feel free to PM if you wish to continue this dialog and so that we do not continue to waste everyone else's time.;
