Re: Is aikido unique?

Ron,
it's a two part interview in the formerly AikiNews #60 and #91. If you can't access it, let me know.

Ironically I was just reading an Aikido Journal interview of Nishio Sensei where he addresses these very same points. His take on it is very interesting. I'd highly suggest it to anyone who hasn't read it. He even mentions a "leather jacket" incident with Tohei Sensei. It was very revealing.

Revealling of what ?
We are talking about 1953. How do you know it wasn't a gift given him in Hawaii where such a thing as a leather jacket was not so valuable?
70 year old admonishes talented but still young 33 year old's reaction to having a prized gift stolen. Nishio Sensei finds the reactions of two 70 year old teachers telling though the comparison hardly seems fair.

The story is really about his justifications for quitting Judo.

Re: Is aikido unique?

Its also on local test requirements in yoshinkan dojo...the last time I remember being two years ago, in a rather complicated multiple attack evasion throw combination. As to the effectiveness arguement...I wouldn't want to take any of those associations too far. I think the participants here are a little too sophisticated to get far with that one.

Re: Is aikido unique?

Thanks Asim! That's a great interview. It really shows what a superb spirit Nishio Shihan has. I think it applies to this conversation in more ways than one...

Re: Is aikido unique?

Yes, I thought it was really telling. It shows alot about our basic human conditioning on attachment to "things", instead of looking at the bigger picture- whether you agree with that big picture or not.
I believe this is what the uniqueness in aikido is all about.
Craig- you can read into as you will. I disagree. Peace.
