Re: Is is it still Aikido if you take away the Japanese clothes, etiquette and other things?

In my opinion the clothing doesn't matter so much as the attitude. I do however appreciate the lack of buttons, clasps, and rivets in the training uniform. Also, since they are white I can tell when someone forgot to wash their gi and avoid the stank

Every day, life is training, every day, budo is life
