Re: Objecting to "Traditional Respect"

This topic has come up before. While I have no doubt that the traditional bowing done in the past was done in part for religious reasons what is in the heart of the individual performing the bow is what is important. I view all the bowing I do as a form of respect and nothing to do with religion.

Good luck in your Aikido endeavors.
