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

Ueshiba had been practiced in western clothe also. He had been practiced open air. And as far as I see he had been practiced all the time not on the training sessions only. I mean that it's normal to practice somewhere out of dojo. But if the goal is to change training uniform or some rituals it will ruin aikido.
1. I don't think that is the goal.
2. How would it ruin aikido?
