I am in full agreement,as you say aikiBUDO,this indicates a different idea.erik would do better to say tomikibudo.
Quick question -- are you saying that Tomiki aikido is not aikido?

As for what Chuck calls his art, I wouldn't care if he called it Foobar-do. I've been fortunate enough to feel what he does, and it's good aikido to me.

I dont know if tomiki is aikido or not and if its cool with hambu dojo what could I say.

There are plenty of dojo that do are not under the umbrella of Aikikai Hombu Dojo yet are still very much a part of the aikido "world" in my opinion. Those in the "styles" of Yoshinkan, Tomiki, Ki Society, Seidokan, and others are still, in my eyes, very much a part of aikido.

Jun, I couldn't agree more. While Aikikai is the original organization, I believe that these instructors who founded these 'styles' simply wanted to put their own 'spin' on Aikido, to bring it to a different audience (Tomiki, for example), and hopefully, to enrich Aikido for all of us.

Re: What makes a good student?

I realize that I am still a beginner to many standards. I still believe that anyone who practices Aikido is a very special person. I have respect to anyone who is willing to be thrown around, (FUN I WANT TO ADD) in this environment. A good student is one who shows respect, has a good attitude all the time, even if their waza is not perfect, because I believe this would come with time. I am still learning right?

Re: What makes a good student?

A good student in my opinion is a member in good standing, meaning:

a member who has good moral character
a member who maintains an updated account
a member who respects all dojo protocols and etiquettes
a member who adheres to the dojo's Code of Honor
a member with good attendance
All of the above
