This sentence summarizes quite nicely the central point about which this discussion revolves. The realization that Aikido is an emergent process doesn't, IMO, manifest itself until later in one's Aikido life. old were you when you started training, Ron? Not asked in a snarky way, but I started in middle age and I and many of the middle aged beginners I've met over the yrs come to or stay with the art explicitly because of this.
