Aikido as Myth

By Maurice Gauthier, M.Ed.

Aikido as Myth

This article examines the popularization of aikido in relation to some religious and corporate values that buttress the modern Japanese art. It also re-visits a time when it was incumbent on practitioners to cultivate a sharp eye in observing the demonstration of techniques they would perhaps witness only once or twice.
