Re: Poll: How important is actively applying the "principles" of aikido "off the mat" in your everyday life?
I hope and I think OSensei would be proud of his students.
Because 'being' gentle seems to be our goal, sometimes I wonder why we train a specific response to specific attacks.
Might it not be better to teach balance and then see how people respond? or should i be studying Tai Chi Chuan with such ideas?
