I guess it depends on the individual, and in the case of Aikido (as a traditional martial art) it may depend on the style of Aikido.

Sorry gotta raise a flag here. Aikido is not now nor has it ever been a "Traditional Martial Art". That isn't to say that I don't like it or that it isn't a martial art which some folks might say but I would reserve the title traditional to the same sort of MA that can be described as Koryu or in the case of Karate Pre WW2.
