Re: I'm Leaving Aikido
Been there, had the same issues...still do to a degree!
Leave Aikido, find something else that fits what you are looking for, that fits your goals.
I did, and suprisingly it helped me better understand aikido!
I now study it with a different outlook and perspective.
For me it was Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Modern Army Combatives.
Aikido did not change. I just now have a better outlook I think of where it fits into my life.
You can't make it something it is not, and sounds like you have found that out!
