Dear Robin,
Having met Fujita Sensei I have never seen him teaching weapons.However his statement seem to be at odds with the fact that O Sensei/Saito Sensei/Tamura Sensei /Chiba Sensei /Nishio Sensei and others trained and taught weapons.This is quite clear from all the various sources[Dvds , You tube etc] where Aikido weapons are shown.Is there an authentic verifiable source whereby Fujita Senseis comments can be authenticated?
Cheers, Joe.
Well there is this article by Stanley Pranin.

Otherwise I am just going by what I have been told.

I don't have anything against Fujita sensei. I trained for 4 years with his student after all. I was just stating why my weapons work is so rusty.
