There is no resistance in aikido, so you must read the next part.
I really appreciate everyone's kind comments.
BTW, I really think the photograph Ernesto discusses above is a big deal. The web of interconnections — Ueshiba, Takeshita, Omoto kyo, Shirata AND his family — is something to consider. Just think of a young 20 year old new uchideshi who has had one of Ueshiba's biggest and most influential supporters over to his house.
