Thank you for the responses so far. There is an Aikido club in my home town that says it teaches Traditional Aikido but I am not sure what that really means? Can anyone elaborate?
That could mean almost anything, since many people of many different styles believe that their style is the most traditional and it's everyone else who's moved away from the original
Regardless, though, the best way to know what it means or in fact to answer any of your questions is to stop by at the dojo you're thinking of and watch a class or two.
