Again, facing ourself is IMHO the only way to improve.

Meekness by definition is gently enduring injury with patience, without resentment, without spirit or courage, submissive, and not violent or strong (Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary).

Perhaps meekness and aggression are the opposites which cancel each other out when balanced. Perhaps neither have a place in improving our Aikido or lives.

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
