Re: Which Style?

I do Tomiki, and I love it, but I have a friend who practices what I might call the Traditional, Ueshiba aikido (showing my ignorance), Hambu style and he flat loves it.

I like the TOmiki stuff (I started Hambu as a kid) because the teachning method flows out from judo's educational background, and it's easier to intake as a western mindset person, IMO. Some folks disagree, and there you have it.

I find it interesting that the kanji character for kuzushi illustrates a mountain falling on a house.
