Re: Ueshiba's Aiki

I wonder if Takeda leaving Ueshiba crying in the corner helped Ueshiba develop Aikido as I understand it. Maybe this is where Ueshiba saw the futility of being the strongest. That there would always be someone stronger or bigger or that has a gun. That maybe what matters in the end is striving for connection and reconciliation. To me this is what makes Aikido different than Aiki. No right or wrong, just different.
do you not think aikido should contain aiki Mary? as in aiki-do, ken-do, ju-do, taekwon-do?
