Thanks Ron, that is true, It is a very joyfully work,
the technique seem to be less relevant in his form, but very deeply in it soul.
The scroll I have in my dojo says "Aiki". The monk who used to be a vice proctor of Eiheiji temple happened to draw it for me. It is "Aiki" instead of "Aikido". I asked why "do (way)" is missing then what he told me was "You find your own 'way'"
