Re: VoE: AWASE - The Principle of AIKI

Dan, this is not a proposition that can be refuted or proven physically. It is more an issue of truth in advertising. So I go to push you, can't move you, then I find myself flung across the room, big deal. Doesn't make it Aikido. The fact that it is pretty cool, and you've attracted some higher-level Aikido people to train with you, and they say it has opened doors for them, revived their practice, doesn't make it Aikido. Doesn't mean it has anything to do with Ueshiba.
What Chris and Chris said - really no need to spell anything out anymore to those that just don't want to hear it. As I said in a previous post, it appears that what we are doing is not for you and that we have a different view on what aiki is and where it came from - our is not your Aikido and there is no changing that for you; so be it, move on.
