Re: The Challenge of Not Competing

There seems to be an obsession with the idea of "not competing" in aikido circles, that I think goes beyond what Ueshiba had in mind.
Hello Mr Cooper,

So what do you think Morihei Ueshiba had in mind?

I have read all the texts in Japanese (and I actually believe that Ueshiba's view was misguided), but I am curious to hear what your general impression is of Morihei Ueshiba's view on competition in aikido.

Best wishes,
