Re: Aikido Isn't Bullshit

If you debate the differneces in techniques in your search to find out what Aikido is then you are barking up the wrong tree; Aikido is not in the techniques. Aikido is the Way of Aiki, and if you grasp that, it doesn't really matter what the technique is or how it is done in a particular school or who modified it to be this or that. And to latch onto another thread, nor is aiki to be found in ukemi practice for ukemi's sake. Uke does ukemi because tori 'causes' him do it. Notice I didn't say - 'make'.
Just my 2c
