Okay, Chris, let me put it to you this way.
I have supplied in this thread already what I consider to be a working definition of the word aikido. And I defined working as (a) meaning something in conversation, (b) functioning as the name for a particular martial art, (c) acknowledging a basis on principles broader than martial art, and (d) making no judgments about the validity of a particular style.
Clearly, you are dissatisfied with my definition. So what would be a better one?
Already posted earlier. We're repeating the conversation from earlier on the thread, what's your point?
