I keep running into different styles of Aikido. How many styles are there?
I'm sure that I was told that there were about four different styles. But I keep finding more, like: Yoseikan, Kokikai, Jiyushinkai, Nippon Kan, etc.
Are these considered Aikido?
Also, is there a significant difference between the styles? Hard/soft, etc.
I'm too new at this to be able to tell the difference (yet). But I will.
