I donīt think youre knocking others by explaining your style.I think itīs all about how you present yourself and respect others ideas and beliefs
I guess the reason I say "weapons in aikido" in the title of this thread is because some people put less or no emphasis on weapons and I donīt want to start a discussion with a conclusion.. Itīs up to people to decide what they think and what they like and shouldnīt be forced I feel. Othervise there would be no reason to discuss I feel.
Sometimes we get too attached to our own ideas I believe.
Very True Lars...and I agree.
