Re: Poll: How important is facing your own aggression in improving your aikido?

Facing and understanding it is always appropriate. However what do you then do?
Again, it comes down to the definition of the term. In this question - aggression.
If "active hostility" is meant, then it should be transformed to "active compassion" (entering) through understanding (centering).
If "energized action" is meant, then it should be channeled and encouraged through centering & entering.
