Glad to hear (read) you took some time to take a look at Alain.
He is not too fond about videos. He does not want people to judge him based on some vid and perhaps dismiss it. He has similar feelings towards pictures. Hence not much material to work with...
Many forms/styles of Aikido exist which is no problem at all. Discussion occurs when making claims about something or other and that too is no problem. Like teaching to express your opinion makes you think about what you do (or think you should be doing), we interact, adapt and basically do Aikido...
To put up your vid shows cohones and makes you vulnerable. Respect.
Nicely put. I looked up Maruyama Sensei. Very good. I loved his kokyunage especially. I'm tempted to say 'that's what I'm talking about' but that's just me.
