Re: VoE: AWASE - The Principle of AIKI

Makes sense but you need to be reasonable to what extent you apply the "bending the facts" approach.

For the statement "hanmi is not taught in Daito-ryu" (assuming it a quote from the Founder) we have Shirata Rinjiro saying

Quote:

"The stance employed in Aikido is hanmi, adapted by the Founder from the clasical Yagyu school of swordsmanship"
-Aikido, the Way of Harmony
(see http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=w...nmi%22&f=false )

It is possible off course that Shirata is "bending the facts" but do you have a good reason to think that?
