Re: Maruyama Shuji's ("That's not my aikido," REDUX

Oops - that part about the internal differences between standing and suwariwaza wasn't conjecture.

My actual conjecture is that Ueshiba would have preferred to have seen the students practicing from kneeling positions, because training that way is more in keeping with the serious study of the internal principles they should have been practicing.,, on (and from) the ground, rather than flying in the airborne division.
