Re: Poll: Does the philosophy of aikido need to be explicitly discussed during class for the training to be "aikido"?

I voted no for a number of reasons:
- no single, agreed upon definition of "aikido philosophy" within the aikido community
- too many half-baked interpretations around anyway!
- I go to the dojo to train technique. If I want to explore the philosophy it's incumbent upon me to investigate that in my own time
