Re: Poll: How important is it for beginners in aikido to experience aikido styles other than their own?

As somebody who made it a point to check out other styles early on, I can say that I did not learn other techniques, but I did learn the very valuable lesson that there is no "one true way." I've also met too many yudansha who have never stepped outside their dojo to explore that reality.
