Re: What enlightened beings were known as GREAT martial artists

Today it is seeming that there is these discussions about building the body to be greatest Aiki body. However the Aikido is known as a spiritual art leading to enlightenment. O Sensei talking about the chinkon kishin, and the purifying with the misogi. More that Aikido is Misogi.
"Aikido" is misogi or "Aiki" is misogi? Is Aikido (the martial art Ueshiba taught to his students) a path to becoming interested in practising Aiki (separate esoteric ki practices)?
