Re: Aikido Journal

I have always taught Aikido for free but that is because I have always had a job. I am not professional in the Aikido business sense. But if I decided to make a living through Aikido, then I would have to becoime professional to earn enough to survive. There is nothing wrong with earning money in Aikido or any art. Go to Japan or Korea and you'll see that is what most are doing. I don't seee AJ as commercialist - I see it as a source of good info and Aikido related products. I paid the subscription and enjoy the articles. It's normal - get over it.
