I've only recently begun practicing in Aikido (about 4 months). And at the risk of sounding un-wise in the ways of aikido can anyone help me with a hole in my knowledge?
I've heard of the two styles in Aikido of Aikikai and Shodokan but what I'd like to know is what is the difference between the two styles i.e. technique.
From what I've heard shodokan tends to teach atemi to people whereas aikikai only teaches this as additional blows during a technique.
I would much appreciate a response to anybody who is willing to enlighten me!
