Re: Aikido is still violent......?

WOW! Many, many thanx for the quotes from the 2 Senseis that I respect very much. PLEASE see if you can get a few more such sayings. I personally train in American Mixed M.A. because the dojo is walking distance from my home and I am "transportation-challenged". You'd be surprised HOW MANY folks in all M.A.'s INCLUDING Aikidokas have told me and insist that Aikido is a punch-less, kick-less, system. Until I get into Aikido physically, I'll continue to study Osensei's and other Great Aiki Masters' biographies, philosophies and ethical systems. Thanx again.
