Yes agreed.

From what I know, they loved to cross train.

If they were alive today they would have a study in every style that would come back and teach them.

IMHO, it wasn't the style but the type of men they were that makes the difference.

Perhaps because we are different types of people, we are not doing the same Aikido?

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
