Re: What makes Aikido unique as a martial art ?
We've had plenty replies saying aikido isn't unique, or at least no more unique than any given martial art.
If this thread was started on a web board 20 years ago. Would people have said that then? Even 10 years ago?
I am under the impression that the online aikido communhity has learned lots, from conversations with people who have experience in aikido and in other arts.
But I think that most aikido people out there still think that what they do is very, very special. I sure used to think so.
