Re: Top 10 Reasons Why You Joined Aikido

I've made comparisons when i was younger... I grew up loving martial arts and tried quite a number....

Through that I learned that in most cases you have to by physically superior to be more efficent in combat....

I was a Steven Segal fan around High School, so when I came to Manila I came across dojos teaching the art....

What I learned from aikido, and I believe is the reason that compelled me the most, is because we get trained to conserve our energy... that in the worst of situations we have to remain in harmony with the environment... be at peace...

reminds me of two warrior classes I admire... the Samurai and the Jedi
