I'm currently studying Tomiki Aikido under Dr. Yoji Kondo, although I started in Yoshinkan aikido under Helton-Sensei. I'm also studying Taiji under D. Gilmer at StillwaterTaichi I'm informally studying jo and bokken.

comment Best martial art for someone with bad elbow?
Yes, and it bugs me a little bit to ignore Tomiki's preference, but language is what it is, not what we want it to be. "Shodokan aikido" is a rare term in the USA.

I hate to offer incremental criticism, but in addition to the link, it is very helpful if you can summarize the critical points of the link. That way if the link vanishes, the Q&A still has value.

This seems to me to be a variant of the "My silver coated shotgun pellets will defeat your Chuck Norris BJJ flying chicken style". The kind of questions we've wisely avoided in the past.
