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

So...they weren't practicing Aikido at the Asahi Shimbun or at the Kobukan?
Those were before 1942.

Oh yeah? How is Saotome Sensei's etiquette different than that practiced by Osensei, exactly?
Talk to Saito, or rather, any of the old time Iwama guys. Saotome's etiquette isn't even quite the same as the etiquette practiced at Aikikai Hombu. Not that I care about it, but some people seems to think that breaks the transmission.

Best,

Chris
