What style of Aikido do you like best? Why?
Posted 10/24/08
I say Kokikai because it focuses on minimum effort with maximum effect and ki development. I also like the meaning of the name which is "school of radiant ki." Sounds pretty cool to me

i always thought there was only one type of aikido which is basically just another form of aiki-jujutsu created by Ueshiba. is there much difference between them?

There is only one aikido, but aikido itself has different styles within it. Aikido's parenthood is not only aiki-jujutsu, but it is also sojutsu, kenjutsu, judo, and jujutsu. I can't really answer "how much difference between them" because it depends on your preferences.

some examples of different styles of aikido:
ki-society
shodokan
koboyashi (lol that is a name of a fuseki in Go, sorry if a little off topic )
