Re: ?? Exaggeration in Aikido ??

Aikido is what it is. So is judo, karate and everything else. You as an individual make it work. It doesn't make you work. A good martial artists can make any art work good. A great martial artist can make any art work great. A crummy martial artist can't make any art work and it won't make him work better either. It's not the method that makes the person. It's the person that makes the method. That's why O Sensei was better than most of us.
Best,

"It is the philosophy that gives meaning to the method of training."
