Also notice that DeLucia claims to have studied Aikido for longer than OSensei studied any of the various ryu that he based Aikido on. Is DeLucia unqualified to have worthwhile views on martial arts because he is non-asian?
The claim is wrong of course and even then Ueshiba changed the name of what he was trained in to Aikido.
That said there are Japanese Aikidoists that also get flack for doing same but he's out there with a huge web site promoting it.
Put yourself out there is bikini briefs and you are fair game.
