Re: Morihei Ueshiba's Aikido is Daito ryu

So Mark, what do you call the art you are now practicing? Perhaps the art formerly known as 'Daito ryu?'
Hi Ricky,

Personally, right now, I've taken a short break from training in organizational aikido. If I was closer to some of the Jiyushinkai dojos, I would definitely be training with them. I love what they do. If I was closer to Harrisburg, PA, I'd train at Itten. Out in the Portland-Seattle area, it'd be with those folks out there (Chris, Jeremy, Allen, etc.) In the Boston area, I'd train under Rob. There are a lot of great places out there to practice. I'm in the middle of WV, so I find that all the places that *I* want to train are quite a ways off.

To answer your question, I call what I'm doing right now as training to gain structure with aiki as the end goal.
