Re: Why these techniques?

it makes sense that aikido has roots in BOTH weapons AND empty hand arts... Osensei studied both armed and unarmed arts and synthesized aikido from both... historical evidence supports this veiw... my sensei's and others such as Stanley Pranin and John Stevens have done the research and wrote at great length on this... but what you say does not make sense, and is in fact contrary to people who i am sure have more experience and authority to say just what aikido is and is not... if you can provide evidence to support your claim then do so, until then your words are empty... where do you train in Long Beach? does your dojo have a webpage?
