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

It is!

And to make the whole scene even less Japanese, the fellow defending himself against the car jacking aggressor is the son of Hakkoryu's founder.

We're hosting Nidai Soke Okuyama next year in Michigan. I'm planning to tease him about this photo, then take him to the golf course in my '67 Buick (which does not have a Hakkoryu logo on the door, thank you very much). You're welcome to join us...golf, Buick ride etc. I won't be playing golf though because I'll be damaged goods after the week of training beforehand. I'll be ok at driving the cart and assuming the role of caddy.

Devon.
