Of course even Tissier's kind of Aikido varies probably form dojo to dojo. But in general I must say that it is just normal Aikido, but in my experience it isnot soft Aikido.

On the otherhand, I haven;t met an aikidoka with less than a year of exprience that could see, understand and appreciate the differences between certain styles, let alone see and understand some of the subtileties (sp?) within Aikido.
