Re: Poll: Have you ever questioned why you are training in aikido?
I ask myself why I train from time to time, especially when I've hit a plateau. The answer usually comes back that there is something that I am accomplishing by training, whether I feel like I am making progress or not. I don't think that the "something" has a definite end.
And I agree with Janet Rosen that questioning from time to time helps things from becoming mere activities in repetition.
