Re: VoE: AWASE - The Principle of AIKI
What we have been told is part of tradition. Tradition is the handing down of things, passing on, usually verbally. Be it customs, stories, beliefs etc.
As all styles of Aikido have things handed down in such a way then they are by definition all traditional.
The question is thereafter only which traditions does each follow and which do they decide not to.
Value of such is personal to those who follow the ones they do. Thus immeasurable.
Research can merely note this. No other significance as I see it.
