I really don't think that you understand my definition, as I mentioned above.
I only know what you have told me. You have told me that anything done with aiki
can be properly called aikido. If I accept that statement as true, it logically follows (since aiki
is not exclusive to our particular martial art), that many different martial arts and activities could be accurately and properly called aikido, at least some of the time. And if that is the case, then the term aikido
cannot function as the name for our particular martial art.
Even if I don't understand you at all, even if I don't understand aikido at all, that's still how language works.
