Re: Aikidoka learning Japanese

One of our dojo is located at USA Yokosuka Naval Base in Japan. Members are American.They learn Japanese as well as Aikido in the class.
If you learn only technique,you may not need to learn Japanese. However, if you want to learn spirit of Aikido,you had better learn Japanese.
