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

I posted this, then i was like, wait, that is really sneery and I don't really want to have a conversation with that kind of tone. And then I lost power and the edit timer ran out!

So when I say "Why are we going to agree to disagree" I mean...to what extent do you think the traditions of Aikido (your Aikido) can be changed by students without transforming the practice into something else?
Thank you for clarifying.

I probably don't have time to address this right now - I gave a long reply to another post and my work break is now over - but your longer question here merits a reply and I will get to it. Thank you for maintaining a cordial tone!
