I am routinely asked by a non-Aikido practice group to share Aikido insights into their practices. I routinely take away from their practices as well.

It's not my teaching Aikido; rather, it's "given my years of Aikido, here's a different perspective, a modification or adjustment, an alternative, an opening to exploit, a way to make that more effortless or more painful, ... If it works, keep it and work it in to what you already do."

No big deal.
On the contrary. That's good and therefore it is a big deal.
