Is Aikido a Martial Art ? - Blitz Australasia Magazine Nov 2006
The subject "Is Aikido a Martial Art?" an article which has received world wide appeal and interest.This was shown by the interest from `Blitz Martial Arts Magazine` which covers the vast Australasia region.`Aikido Today Magazine` also covered this article for the Americas.I have received some negative responses from the anonymous plastic samurai - on the other hand there has been a rewarding large response from genuine students who were not afraid to add their names.Today Aikido is ridiculed by members of the public and more so from other martial artists, this is deserved in most cases with some of the antics we see from `comedy aikidoists` with their pseudo religious teachings with music and ribbon dancing in the dojo.Ki students breathing through their toes - Ki people trying to knock apples off each others heads with the power of their Ki - you could not make this crap up - someone already did.

The discredited British Aikido Board in recent years has been guilty of crass and appalling conduct. The true extent of which was not realised until an ex BAB Executive contacted Henry Ellis to advise him that the senior BAB Executives had been guilty of defamation of the good name of Henry Ellis and character by spewing lies and false rumours that Ellis had been charged with GBH ( grievous bodily harm ) this offence is second only to murder..The irony of this slander is that Henry Ellis did not even have a parking ticket against his name.
