Re: Poll: How important is the philosophy of aikido during your "on the mat" training?

Maybe its a question of experience initially.
Those that are new are just trying to do...those with experience are doing in order to achieve a goal. Maybe also what people want from aikido changes as they grow. In the cases above you can see short term goals and long term goals. Hopefully the short term goals align with the long term goals eventually. For me now this is critical....all practice is ultimately geared toward my perception of the 'philosophy of aikido'. Cheers D
Well, spoken (er...written), well said (um...typed)!
