Re: Baseline skillset

I do believe that Aikido is complete in and of its' self and is lacking nothing with the right instruction. Now I have been labeled by Dan and others as "a true believer" mea culpa mea culpa, mea culpa. That is not to say I do not believe there is value in other training as I obviously do because I train in other things. Many of the lessons within Aikido transcend the labeling and when presented from other viewpoints can at times flip the cognitive switch. Everyone here that presents a good argument for their standpoint has a right to do so. I don't like to see it get personal but then who am I but another voice in the wilderness.
