Re: When your family resents Aikido

I think back to my mother and how she might have handled it. I think it would have gone something like this...

To Husband:
Grow up and stop whining.

To Kids:
Because I'm your mother and I said so.


"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."
