Re: Poll: Would you consider aikido without a physical practice component to still be

To be clear, I'm not saying that lessons from aikido can't apply off the mat, but I don't think you could call a non-physical activity "aikido". At one workshop I attended years ago with Kurita Minouru, he went so far as to say that aikido only happened within a dojo.

What is Aikido?
What are the specific goals of Aikido?
Is it possible to seperate those goals from the pedagogical method, and if not, then why not?
