Re: Maruyama Shuji's ("That's not my aikido," REDUX
Ethan, are you talking about O-Sensei's footsteps or Saito-Sensei's footsteps? Just confused.... I always assumed O-Sensei's own training was about daito-ryu, esoteric religion, and farming, roughly speaking.
I like Basho: "Do not seek to walk in the footsteps of the masters of old, seek what they sought".
