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

Aikidoka's reduces hakama, start to do sparring and becomes sambo fighters. Joke only.
It's near by self-definition as for me. If you take all ideas so you will be aikido guy but if you ask: "Why I had to bow this old man photo?" you need something different. Maybe the motto of japanese martial arts is: "All or nothing".
