Having fun with your statement I know but since they invented training methods does that mean they re-invented Aikido?
Interesting point. Keeping with that same thought, where do we draw the line as to how far we can go before something gets re-invented?

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.

Ok Yann. You can be Shodokan Menace #3 and Sean can be #4 .

Of course we must ask permission from "the Godfather" the Don himself Peter.

As far as your post goes, I totally agree.


Shodokan Menace #2

Ian, go for it! As long as the rule is: you have to be funny and not insulting -- yeah, yeah yeah, I know that most of you will assume that but remember this is the Internet where _anybody_ can posts.

Larry: Aiki Mafia: The Shodokan Menace. Definitely sounds like a film. Maybe we should phone Seagal and ask him if he would fund it. After all, he has connections to both Aikido and the mafia ... </bad joke>

BTW, Sean you coming up to York this Wednesday with Scott?

The people who understand, understand prefectly.
