Re: Different Styles of Aikido, same smiles?

Well, thus far, I seem to want to partake in the Run, Fooo...(L) style. And I would, except...you know how in each style, one has to fall often, to be a good Aikidoist? When it comes to running I am, at that, probably a good Aikidoist.
Anywho, I want to thank you all for taking the time to read my post and answer. Additionally, I'd like to commend you all on not taking a "mine is better than theirs" approach. I participated in another MA prior to finally having to opportunity to become involved with Aikido. You, and the people with whom I have begun training, really honor what I seem to understand what O'Sensai was trying to say. It took courage for him to take that stand then; it takes courage for you to take it now.
Thanks very, very much.
Sue
