Re: Aikikai: Style or organisation?

Well surely Humbo-dojo must have an official position on what they describe themselves as?

From the Aikikai Homepage:

Aikido is a new Japanese martial art created during the 1920s by Morihei Ueshiba, an expert who reached the highest level of mastery in the classical Japanese martial arts. Officially recognized by the Japanese government in 1940, the Aikikai Foundation (Aikido World Headquarters) is the parent organization for the development and popularization of Aikido throughout the world. Under the leadership of Moriteru Ueshiba Doshu, instructors are teaching Aikido according to the ideals of the Founder (Morihei Ueshiba O-Sensei) to students in Japan and throughout the world.



A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"
