Sense,

It is difficult to reconcile this quote, which I agree with entirely, with your praise of Dan who is opposed to everything you say below.
just boggle the mind isn't it. here you have a guy insulted you and seemed to insult everything else. George did not only go postal on the guy, but invited him to his dojo to teach. that's just insane. personally, i think Ledyard sensei got hit in the head by Saotome sensei once too many times, and has finally lost his marble. come to think of it. there were other folks who did the same thing. they must be crazy too. must be some kind of a cult or .. *gasp* a movement, similar to when you jumping up and down yelling "Kill! Kill!" and get other folks to do it too. it must be a movement! i need to some of those craziness to balance my own insanity; sort of fight fire with fire which would only get you to break out into singing kumbaya and dancing naked around bonfire.

Hmm. You know nothing of Dan beyond his forum posts. Ledyard Sensei has trained with him on multiple occasions. Who do *you* think has more accurate knowledge of how his instruction relates to aikido practice?
