For me, the beauty of Aikido is the journey. The techniques are important, but the learning process is what gives me the most satisfaction and opportunity for reflection. I suppose that on certain occasions I would be tempted to take that magic pill. Some days my back and various other body parts would enjoy a pill for mastering ukemi.
I think that my girlfriend (we are an aikicouple) would be much more likely to take up such an offer. That's only because she is far more goal oriented than I am. I think that it is wonderful that we can derive satisfaction from the same thing in different ways.
