Re: A Consideration of Aikido Practice within the Context of Internal Training

Have the English translations been checked against the Japanese original, whether 'modernized' or not? I seem to remember a vast amount of discussion in these forums not so long ago about the quality of certain English translations of Morihei Ueshiba's writings. Is it a well-grounded assumption that both the original writer and the translators had the requisite knowledge?
