Even if when I eventually cross from AJJ to Aikido my training does not exactly reflect his style, his dvds and example will serve as a source for me to one day with enough skill and experience, develop my own expression. The martial effectiveness of Aikido is something that is very important to me.
Well... in that case I think you have grasped the essential part of what he tried to teach. To keep in mind that we are doing Budo - not dancing, and to develop what is your aikido based on what ever knowledge you can assimilate.
Good luck with that
