So we wonder how people go astray in aikido, trading efficacy for an illusion of peace. Yet, criticizing Kisshomaru on this basis is to disregard the fact that Morihei, in his time, did exactly the same thing regarding what his own master, Takeda Sokaku, had taught him.

His main activities move to Tokyo. Evolution is ever changing in accordance to the demands of real necessity. Let us also not forget that it is thanks to the choices made by Kisshomaru that most of us practice aikido today and that criticizing him on the basis of his open and broad diffusion of aikido is to deny ourselves any legitimacy to be practicing this art. But they were eager to talk about their experiences and leave some information behind.
