Re: Poll: Have you ever questioned why you are training in aikido?
Yes. The answer is always the same. I train in Aikido because I don't golf. I don't golf because I never conquered my fear of windmills and clown faces.
Is the question, have I ever questioned why or why do I train? I evolved into it from the harder bashing arts. Seemed like a natural evolution.
Or is this a Zen koan? Then simply bow and train on.
