Re: Poll: How important for you is the spreading of the art of aikido into the world?
O'Sensei had grand visions of a world that's in harmony with the universe. While I believe individuals can achieve this, aikido being a very useful tool, you cannot realistically expect this from an entire society as a whole.
And why would anyone be an "aikido crusader?" I think it's contrary to our principals to proselytize ourselves upon others.
