Re: True Warfare
Thanks Matthew. A well thought out view if I may say so. Mine being different doesn't take away from following your reasoning.
I asked about first impressions of Aikido because I feel most (I may be wrong here) see it more as you described ie: like a japanese tai chi type of art. Even watching O'Sensei in action others have usually laughed and been amazed as it looks more like a person playing, having fun. Just something that took my attention, that's all.
