Re: VoE: AWASE - The Principle of AIKI

Well....all down to personal experiences really. I'm one of those people who's had Dan to their club.
Just to be clear, you describe a different seminar.

Quote:
I never heard Dan say negative things about the founder - instead many times he refered to his amazing skills.
Neither have I. In fact Dan mentioned the Founder only once when he supported his approach by quoting a translation from Budo by Chris Li.

For what its worth and because of the question on 'modern Aikido'...
In this thread 'modern Aikido' was introduced by Mark in post #1 (http://www.aikiweb.com/forums/showpo...1&postcount=1). In my definition I just follow Stanley Pranin article "Is O-Sensei Really the Father of Modern Aikido?" (http://blog.aikidojournal.com/2011/1...tanley-pranin/)

Quote:
Also student of Matsuharu Nakazano & Masamichi Noro and from 1965 student of Nobuyoshi Tamura Shihan.

Is this modern Aikido or not?
It is, according to the proposed definition.
