What is Dan Harden's lineage?
You'll have to ask Dan that. I will say that my lineage is fairly public, along with many of the others who are saying that, yes, this is "Aiki".

I'll also note that the only people who seem to challenge the right to express an opinion based on the lineage of the person stating the opinion seem to come from conventional Aikido.

As to "Aiki", in this thread http://www.aikiweb.com/forums/showthread.php?t=22083, we have the Founder giving "Aiki" two different meanings. Which one do you have in mind?
Greg made a pretty good reply to that (and Carsten added an interesting additional comment) , and I agree - I don't see two different definitions at all.

Not at all, just asking for what they mean by that and the proof.
That's just the thing, I don't see you asking most folks to provide proof when they talk about "Aiki" only a certain group. If you disagree with that definition (and it's been posted fairly clearly at various times) then provide your own and show us why that one should be more valid.

Best,

Chris
