Re: Is is it still Aikido if you take away the Japanese clothes, etiquette and other things?
Is it still Japanese food if you eat it with a fork?
Yup, and if you eat kaiseki off styrofoam with Coca-Cola sitting on your couch watching Jerry Springer, it is still Japanese food. And the point of it will be less and less accessible to you the more random unrelated elements you add.
... and that may or may not be applicable to aikido.
