those are both very good replies, I never would have considered Gen Choi, but you do make a very clear point about more former TKD in aikido than vice Versa. I know that that statement applies to me, as well.
"Bruce Lee was a deeply philosophical and educated person who went against the traditional martial arts thinking of the time to create an art that blended the best of many arts "
This same statement can be made about Kano as well, although, Lee had the very good fortune to being around with Television Movies and other Mass Media, whereas Kano, was not that blessed.
But you have to admit, like it or not, the Marital arts community would be very different without Lee and TKD.
