Quote me correctly, I stated "pure Aikido has no form.", not true Aikido.
I'll give this one more shot.
"In reality, Aikido has no forms, no set patterns. It is like an invisible wave of energy." - M.Ueshiba
That's pure Aikido. If that answer doesn't satisfy you then call it whatever you like Matt.
Okay, so pure aikido has no forms or set patterns. The martial art we practice in the dojo does
have forms and set patterns, therefore it is not pure aikido. Fair?
