Re: Questionable Content

Hi All,

Just ask the instructor/sensei/shihan. Some individuals have made them out to be so unapproachable it is ridiculous. They are not gods. Even more saddening, is a thread asking for a consensus of opinion on what to do.

Mr. Ledyard, if you were giving a seminar and saw you were being photographed or videoed, would you set the parameters to which the media would be used? Would you have them stop recording the event, if that was what you wanted?

Artistic license is not poor or incorrect performance of a technique. Aikido is a living art...some need to learn all techniques are not designed for all that are required to learn them.

Train well,
