The latest "It Had to Be Felt" essay is now available for your reading pleasure, this time on Akimoto HIdehiro of the Iwama Ibaraki Dojo, written by Carl Thompson.
From the essay: "Akimoto sensei once stated that when training under O-sensei, he did not get involved in the fighting culture that certain other teachers were notorious for. However, he followed this up with a very convincing statement that he knew what to do in a fight, and that the aikido we did in the dojo was a form of budo, which must be effective."
