Yeah," Aki". I already know what Aiki means. Anyway, about Used Tea Bags.
Who ever said 5 used tea bags isn't better than 1 new one? Those 5 bags are different flavors all combined into one. I don't know about you but I wouldn't mind having a 5 flavor tea over 1.
(BTW: I'm in school right now so I might not reply that quick.)
Aikido is just two used teabags, irimi and tenkan
I wouldn't give Ueshiba credit for inventing any new martial art, but that doesn't make his achievement any less impressive.
As long as we keep building humans with two legs, two arms, and one head, just like we did 10000 years ago, there probably won't be many new inventions in martial arts.
