Aikido would not be aikido if it was like the other arts. But it is entirely possible that fewer people in aikido than in other arts feel the need to cross train.
How would cross training help me understand your point?

I gotta agree, this is a discussion forum where ideas and opinions can be exchanged for everyone's growth and benefit (and sometimes entertainment). As much as I enjoy a night of cards...we ain't playing Texas Hold'em.
Name or at least describe what specific physical principle is unique to ony Aikido, then we can discuss whether we think it is valid or not.

Only if you're being attacked brother!

If you don't know, or if you can't answer it's ok. I knew I was posing a tough question, and I know you won't cut me slack on next week's poll discussion.

Good training anyway.

And also more stress on defense from a seated position is something aikido is unique at?

A secret of internal strength?:

Right. Well. If you're going to sing my praises - or even my student's - like that, I have to point out that this boy had three other teachers as well as me. He happened to be my student at the time. My predecessor had him longer than I did. My two successors had him even longer, including Tadhg Bird, who you'll see piping up around here on occasion.

I'd love to say it was my instruction that made all the difference. It might even be true. But I ain't saying it is, 'cause I just don't know.

In any case, here's the e-mail his mother sent to the school about the incident: Gregorio's Story
