Re: Aikido: Discussions of power

O.K. Done. Comparisons: His Aikido was different to what most thought it was. Others had a hard time understanding where he was coming from. That's about it.

Other things stated in that post imply he was searching for power, I disagree. I think too many equate him with Musashi.

If anything he was searching for responsibility not power in my view.

OK, so what is agreed is that most people today are not doing Ueshiba's aikido -

As far as what he was searching for, I do not think anyone can say for sure because people today are not doing what he was doing and we can't ask him for clarification - so all that leaves is speculation and entertaining discussions
