Re: Poll: How important is "courage" in your own personal aikido practice?
I really don't think of myself has having courage. Not that I don't have fears and not that I have overcome some of them. It's just I don't think of my training in that way. To me, courage is my uncle dying to save the life of his buddy during the war in Vietnam.
(Editing to add: And to me courage is a liver transplant recipient starting aikido two months after his surgery and still sticking with his aikido training after 7 years.)
