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

Watching this lovely thread, what I am taking away from the discussion is that maybe there isn't an "Aikido" anymore. It looks like the different lines may have drifted far enough apart that "Aikido" as a proper name doesn't work, and you have to shift to "aikido" as a broad, general class.
