Re: Aikido suffering identity problem?

I too use the jujutsu comparison, even though I might add that aikido is an evolution of jujutsu, with strong ethics being added. I usually donīt mention aikidos spiritual aspects, as I do not necessarily want to attract spiritual seekers.

The fun part is when I use the explanation "modernized jujutsu", because people tend to react by asking why we wear hakama and train with medieval weaponry. :-)
