Re: Poll: How important is the philosophy of aikido during your "on the mat" training?
I vote somewhere in between very and critically important. The philosophy keeps me from doing the technique with excessive force. It also keeps me trying to work out my problems with the people I don't enjoy training with. Mostly I think of the philosphy off the mat. Like when driving in traffic or in line at the store.
