Re: Osensei's Feet of Clay

I am entirely on a page with you, Mr. Amdur, perhaps a small part of why, as much as I love aikido as an art and philosophical approach to life, don't fit in well with many dojo groups.

In my own reading, well beyond just your excellent works, much of this information is equally obvious and ignored. I believe it is really important that we don't put those who have pointed a meaningful way forward upon pedestals. Doing so is often a sign of a "follower" preaching their own agenda in the name of their avatar.

Of course, that ship has already sailed.

Regards,

Tarik
