Re: Aikido survivors
I have often likened aikido to something simple, like brushing your teeth. What makes people quit brushing their teeth? And then, don't they sometimes brush their dentures? I think people start off with a soft toothbrush, graduate to a medium, and if they become obsessed they use a hard brush until their gums bleed. But as they get older, I think the time comes when they return to a soft brush, and actually brush their teeth with affection and compassion. In gassho.
