I disagree with your "false" notion. Aikido reveals itself to us as we train. There is no one way to rightness. Talk is cheap...mat time matters.
Really? Which part of my 'false' do you disagree with?
Holding or keeping a point has specific results. As no one has said what this is yet have given their honest conclusions based on what they did experience then I can say those conclusions are not based on the reality of one point. Pretty straightforward I would say.
This in no way invalidates the pluses gained from the methods they do use as it's not about rightness. It's about what reality do you have on one point, as a point.
