Dear Yannis,
You certainly pick a contrast of Aikido styles when you ask us to look at the current Doshu and Mr Seagal. Frankly they are miles apart as far as their Aikido skills are concerned.Note I am not saying one is better /worse than the other just different.
Agreed. I never said they are the same. There is one aikido but each master has his personal style of executing techniques. Doshu and Seagal sensei are different, yet neither of them practicing a soft form with no martial effectiveness.
