Well spoken Kami - In my opinion Kendo should get in there as part of the olympics since it is one of the most competitive MA I know of. It would however be wonderful with a demonstration of Aikido without ANY aspect of competition. It could direct attention towards Aikido and the difference compared to all the highly competitive sports would be evident to everybody. Regreatably this is not likely to happen. Olympics is not any more a about being part of it - but a matter of winning - winning to promote ones own ego, ones country and ones trainer. Come to think of it it's rather sad.
