Hi.
I remember a while back people were talking about Aikido in the Olympics with a Tomiki style competition. If I remember right a lot of people were adamantly against the idea of competitive Aikido in the Olympics. But what if (and a big what if, because it will never happen this way) Aikido were treated as a performance art rather than a point by point MA competition? What if you were judged on the grace of your iriminages and the softness of your ukemi? How many people would change their minds about the Olympics? (And would you try to enter?)
