Re: Diff. styles, 1 Aikido

It is my understanding that O' Sensei did not create a style he created the foundations for Aikido. Once a student had gained a good understanding of these foundato
ions it is for him/her to then develop their own Aikido. We are all individuals. Therefore, our own Aikido is individual. However, it does not mean to say that we do not have great influences upon our learning and practice of Aikido, as one day your students will have of you. Stay true to the foundation of O' Sensei's legacy then Aikido has a heritage that will continue. Your development of those foundations gives you your Aikido.

y have of you
