Here is Alexander Bennett quoting Sensei Inoue Yoshihiko (Kendo 8th Dan Hanshi)

“Kendo is universal wisdom that teaches us the supreme value of life through knowing techniques of life. Kendo is always ‘correct’. There is no such thing as incorrect kendo, just incorrect practitioners.    It has always been that way since time immemorial. It isn’t a matter of race, age, gender, or class. It’s just a matter of intent.”

Is this true of Aikido also?
