I recently have found myself to be in the role of instructor for my Aikido class. I currently hold the Rank of Nidan and I know that I have a long way to go before I really know Tomiki Aikido. My problem is that the next nearest class is over 90 miles away. I am interested in improving my skills and I find myself studying the techinques that my students use to adapt a move to their different body types. Occationally, I find a better way even if it is not the original form of the technique. Am I right to use these "hybred" froms of Aikido techniques? Should I teach them to the class? Can I improve on a technique without loosing the original intent?
