I don't know if anyone does totally pure Aikido in Aikido. Many of the people I train with and under do other things and have done other things, including me. I work very hard to "compartmentalize" all the arts I do, partly out of respect and partly to keep my head from exploding. But I don't know if it can be helped; what's in your muscle memory is in there.

I agree. You never see this in real life, with someone sticking his head in the dojo door to argue, do you? I haven't. In reality, people vote with their feet, staying away from what's not right for them.

But thanks for stopping by and don't be a stranger.
