Re: Weapons training leads to good aikido.

To do good and complete aikido: does one need to know the weapons training part of it?
Yes if your definition of good and complete means knowing how to use a stick properly. Like many parts of aikido training (suwari-waza, randori), weapons work is a decent tool for teaching specific aspects of distance, posture etc. However, it's not the only tool or method available.
