Larry, if you are the Shodokan menace #2 and Peter is #1, then what are the rest of us?...
Yann, trust me I've played with making up collective nouns for the various styles... perhaps one for the humour thread if anyone's interested?
James, I think you have to go back to Larry's point regarding principles. Step outside what is seen as the principles behind aikido (both martially and philosophically) then you've crossed over to a new ma. The problem is getting a concensus on what the principles actually are (and can you bend them?)
PS to be really picky, I'm going to take issue with the word re-invent and insist on either redefine, reassess or rediscover as I was always taught re-inventing anything was a no no and showed poor knowledge of the subject.
