Re: Culture of Martial Mediocrity?

good post larry i'm getting into the SD thing in another thread, but a lot of what we are saying here is applicable... does it necessarily take "many years" to be able to use aikido for SD... i think too many people over mystify aikido... the basic physical movements can be learned in a relatively short time, but deeper understanding and "gracefulness" come with more pratice... it is IMHO unfortunate for the art that so many have apparently missed the points that Alec and I seem to share from his post... aikido is equally both physical and spiritual... lose one and you lose both...
