Re: Is Aikido right for me?

thanks for the polls Jun... i amswered YES to all... i was quite surprised that the majority voted NO on the question Is everyone suitable for aikido, although the question was worded absolutely everyone... i still find it to be central to aikido that it is absolutey about 'absolutely everyone, especially those farthest from the path... the ones most in need of unity and harmony rather than excluding these people shouldn't we all have a kind of 'bottisatva' attitude of helping everyone... compassion for all and the sincere desire to help then realize and practice the principles of aikido... wouldn't this lead to more benefit for all?
