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

I think sometimes it is important to train in your everyday clothes. If a situation escalated in a real life scenario would you be wearing a Gi? Aikido is Aikido no matter how you approach it. If you are granted permission to train in plain clothes, then etiquette will have to be there, along with everything else.
