OK. I am curious. What I am going to sell to you - the idea or a product?
Ideas, so far. (I'm waiting to see if there is going to be a product teaching your Aikido Workout ) I have noticed that in all of your 12 posts so far you have made proclamations as to what Aikido really is and to what O'sensei taught and how to approach his teachings. You are presupposing that some or all here do not know these things, are you not?

I don't know anything about you, but I have noticed that sometimes people come to this forum already having an amount of status in their own circle and seem to forget that they do not have that here. I have also noticed that such people do not stay long (unless they are driven to teach aikidoists that aikido is missing some kind of inner power, in which case they seem to never leave. )

Let me leave this by saying that your posts have a basic tone which is respectful, and I, for one, appreciate that!
