As to: No such thing in contemporary aikido... :

Hey Tengu,

I wouldn't verbalize it so strongly.

Think of Bill Gleason, George Ledyard, Chris Li, Saotome, Ikeda, then Phi and then Ron Ragusa and Mary Eastland. To my mind it's also a question of to which degree. Even Chris Hein displays it a bit in his videos of aikido, although he himself, may be, would immediately and strongly deny this.

Take care,


Most of those you mentioned I wouldn't consider contemporary... ;0) Many of them from what I understand are studying/training in the whole IP/Aiki thing... :0)

Sorry to make it seem so bleak, but I feel its a sad state of affairs due to the way things seem to be unfolding... :0(

Take Care,
