Re: You Can Learn Aikido From a Book

Regardless of Tohei's level of talent, he was also a business man and author of many books on Aikido - I would would view parts of that interview as a simple plug for his many books
While that may be your opinion, I knew Cycyk Sensei personally, and his contribution to the martial arts at KI, Karate International, Youngstown, Ohio.

Cycyk sensei was the dojo-cho of the Youngstown Aikikai, and affiliated with Hombu.

Do not diminish and smudge the memory of a very proficient martial artist, by making such a snide and ill-informed remark.

But, then again, I know the company you keep...

Hey Mark, coming to the seminar with the others, missed you on our visit? Get the details from Joe!
