Graham, the marks or grades you give me are meaningless to me. Even if it is an 'A'. Doesn't matter. To me they are empty because they don't relate to my practice or thinking of aikidō. They don't relate to what aikidō is in my understanding.
And it is only you who believes to be in a position, to judge me, my practice or my understanding. I know, you are not.
Oh please...... Your opinions do get an 'A'. Your practice I make no comment on. I judge you not nor your views. I accept them and offer mine only.
