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

Sure, the experience would be different. For that matter, your training under Mitsugi Saotome is vastly different than the experience that you would have had training in Iwama with Ueshiba - even the etiquette was quite different. Does that mean that what you do in D.C. is not Aikido?

Best,

Chris
