From the link in your signature I see that you have your own school. How does the attitude that Aikido is in its best when
is reflected in your training? What weapons are you using and within those weapons do you apply an existing methodology and if so which one?
My students are huge supporters of the idea. In fact, I've never worked with anyone who couldn't quickly see what I was getting at.
My training heavily reflects this idea. We discuss and work with many different types of weapons, both modern and traditional.
What do you mean by methodology? Methodology of the weapon specifics (bladed, projective, long etc) or do you mean Aikido methodology as it pertains to the weapon? I'm not sure what you mean.
