Re: Poll: Have you ever regretted studying aikido?
The physical stuff - Knees, injuries, - but more than balanced by health benefits...most days.
Feeling like I have a different philosophy from 99% of the world now - that sucks. Aiki politics, we all say we hate that...
There are reasons people leave, but I don't think even they regret studying it in general.
Have I ever? Honestly yes, but not often. I love aikido and like some people I love, aikido pisses me off from time to time.
