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

Meekness has earned me some bloody noses; it also helped me survive under the rule of a psychotic parent (or two).

Kyuzo Mifune of judo said we should stand before an opponent and innocently wait to see what they offer us, neither afraid nor aggressive.

Innocence here may mean a neutral focus.
