I'm late to this party but thats not unusual. Another brilliant column, and for me, you are one of the most intellectually stimulating posters on the web and a Sensei I would surely like to meet. Most of my life I've been an admirer of the Martial Arts and just dabbled in a few...perhaps its my fear of commitment!
I have recently decided to give Aikido another try, not because of the art but because of the caliber of the people in it.
Thank you for your leadership and you commitment to helping others to discover themselves.
Good Training Ladds....
