Re: I Need Aikido ?'s Answered PLEASE!
Nice response Amir! Arthur, you're over rationalizing your aikido training and you have not even begun it yet. Heed Micheal Varins advice and join a dojo. To paraphrase yourself, "you don't get it". And you won't get it, by reading the books, or posting on the aikiweb, unless you practice.
If you're in NYC, I would personally recommend you go to the New York Aikikai on 142 West 18th Street. They're good people who do great aikido.
