Just for the record, although I don't compete (are you kidding? I'm old enough to be the father of the retiring champions in my local karate dojo), I support those who practice "sport" martial arts. They put a lot into it, and they get a lot out of it. I'm not going to hold them up to whatever poor understanding I might have of "tradition." I have no problem with aikidog, or what Mr. DeLucia does, although the word confused me, being perhaps too old for the "coolness" of it all. At first I was thinking of akita dog sales, you know, those Japanese dogs. I'm slow.
