Re: Aikido, George Lucas, Star Wars, Ki and The Force

Nice to see a summary of the starwars - aiki relationship all in one place. Thanks Dunken. There is a story bandied about aikido circles downunder of a teacher in the US that resembled Yoda and on who the character was based on? Can anyone shed any light

best,
dan
