..and you are buying a product called 'aikido'?
Is it coming with 5 years of warranty?
Service-customer relation in aikido dojo - is it right spirit for practice?? How can you develop spiritual dimention of aikido practice in such conditions?
The spiritual dimension of aikido can only be taught by example. If a good 'spirit' is not present, then nobody will feel it or learn it. But you do have a point; that 'spirit' cannot be purchased.
