yes, of course there is a big difference. or is there? im not trying to imply that we're all cluelessly involved in some wacky cult. however i was shocked at how similar some of the points and methods are. just food for thought that's all. even if we're the only ones chowing down.
and you're totally right about the us vs. them thing. IMO aikido's philosophy is something of an answer to that very question.
