My Aikikai sensei rocks
This is an interesting point that I don't often see made here because the common outsider view of Aikikai is that it is "fairy stuff".
In my experience, a certain element of the Aikikai are red hot, the best IMO being some soft stylists who are EXTREMELY MARTIAL. I'm not just talking about high grade instructors, although when discussing Shihans, Nishio Sensei is a good example of what I mean.
So in short, I concure... Aikikai Rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!
