Re: Poll: Does aikido contain any physical principles not present in any other budo?

I have to go along with Mark and Neil on this one. Although the question asks specifically about 'physical' principles, not psychological or philosophical. Surely the the aim of protecting your assailant from harm puts aikido at odds with the majority of martial arts out there?



Success is having what you want. Happiness is wanting what you have.
