From what i understand, you are saying aikikai dont believe in ki.
No, what I said was "I don't think that "Aikikai" necessarily means that the dojo is a "non-ki" dojo."

Therefore in my experience, not all Aikikai dojo believe in nor talk about "ki." Not all Aikikai dojo believe that "ki" does not exist.
But ki is central to ALL aikido, so how does that work?
Not to start a Ki War here, but I'll say that not everyone I've met believes that the notion of "ki" is a necessity in learning and/or applying aikido.
