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

IMHO, if you want to improve at anything you have to face yourself.

Since aggression by definition is an unprovoked action or hostile destructive attack intended to dominate or master (Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary), I would say its a pretty important concept to face since it appears IMHO in opposition to the philosophical basis of O'Sensei's Aikido.
