Re: Aiki vs useless waza ?
Well the simple answer is...my own.
True we may follow in others footsteps to a certain degree but all things and people are not equal..there are too many varients..body type..religious/spiritual practises to say I am doing the same as another. I can go to a shrine/mountain and get in big trouble with all kinds of stuff...others maybe can't (and trust me you wouldn't want too ^^)
Only a fool would say that everyone in Honbu is doing Kishomaru's aikido and same for someone saying they do exactly the same as Ueshiba.
What's it to you anyway Mark? I don't worry too much about what others are doing : )
