Blog Article: "The trouble with aikido" by Wayne Muromoto
Posted 2/15/2012 2:32pm [from Jun Akiyama]

Here's an interesting blog article entitled "The trouble with aikido" by Wayne Muromoto listing some of his thoughts regarding aikido based on his past experiences in the art. From the article: "One person in my circle surmised, 'Well, I think the problem here is Ueshiba Morihei himself (the founder of aikido).' He explained: a lot of people see videos and illustrated techniques of Ueshiba as an old man throwing people around with a flick of his wrist, and they think they’re Ueshiba. They’re not. Ueshiba spent decades and decades refining his concept of aiki theory to a point where he could do that."
