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

This time, I voted very important. The philosophy that I practice most outside my mat-times is 'non-resistant' or the principle of ju (pliability). Having work in the service industry, customer interaction is very important to me and I actually have used this principle many times to resolve irate customers.


SHOMEN-ATE (TM), the solution to 90% of aikido and life's problems.
