I'm just stating that i find it sad that budo is being distorted into something i belive it is not.
I am not American so I am not offended by the comments about American comercialism and such and such.
However what I find offensive is the idea that everyone is practising this 'perverted' aikido except you. My instructor was taught by shihan at the hombu and I am going for six months training under shihan. I am sure people around the world including America are doing the same thing - in this way something cannot be (insert nationality)-ised.
I don't really understand if you are knocking tomiki aikido or the U.S. If it is the former I cannot accept your opinion because frankly you do not know enough about it.
Have you every heard of the expression 'with ability comes humility?'
