Re: Shiro Omiya Shihan on "Aiki"

There are a number of Daito-ryu schools and people who practice it. Not all of them have and represent Sokaku Takeda's aiki. In the absence of that very genuine, physical skill, understanding of what aiki is and is not will be inaccurate, or at best incomplete. Furthermore, experience time and again has revealed that even those Daito-ryu people who do have and practice aiki, will not provide straightforward or complete facts about it publicly and in books.
While possibly true, it is this type of post that will drag this thread down into the dregs. Too many assumptions and opinion stated as fact.
