Re: Poll: Which do you think is more important in aikido?

Keep in mind that this question is not asking for an absolute choice between the two. It's not asking you to forsake one for the other. Think of it this way - If you had more of one than the other, which would you prefer?

Here's my logic:
If I had great mobility and average stability, my Aikido wouldn't be as effective as if I had great stability and average mobility. Look at the masters - they have roots that go all the way to the center of the earth, and their movements can at times be barely perceptible.
