It all depends on how you train. Not all Aikido styles are traditional- some are eclectic.
Well that's a quite usual answer. But the styles "real face" is not made up of a minority of eclectic schools. It's not made up of couple of masters who can do unbelievable stuff... it's made up of the usual dojos and usual practioners. Usual officials flying in from Aikikai to grade dan levels and the dan levels they grade... etc...
