I don't think you're doing aikido at all. Period. End of story. I don't even see why you're here on this forum in the aikido sections.
Indeed. Noro Masamichi at least had the decency to change the name of the thing he ended up doing.
I thought the same thing watching Noro as I did watching certain other people...What does this have to do with budo or Aikido? Only later did I find out that Noro got that as well and knew well that he should call it something different, so he changed the name. Hence no comments. It's clean.

Somewhere or another, Budo needs to be tested as a budo...
No matter what they say
No matter how they defend it.
No matter their arguments to the contrary
It must be martially effective or it isn't a bu-do...its just a-do.
It's always been that way, and always will be.
