Re: Poll: Is comparing aikido with other martial arts worthwhile to you?
It was important (at first) for me to compare what I was learning with "other arts". Then I started to understand the principles - I saw it in the other arts - I saw it in other things.
I compared it a few times to "other arts" people, who just don't get it.
I'm done comparing - I just accept it, and want to learn more of it.
