Re: Are we really doing O'Senseis Aikido?
I am sure Saito sensei didn't lie. I am sure he said what he thought was the truth. There are many nuances to "truth", however.
"A said that B said x, therefore it is an established fact that B said x" is not really my kind of logics. You wouldn't find a court that excepted it as evidence. To many possibilites for misunderstandings and personal agendas playing a part, IMHO.
