Re: Is it wrong if my purpose in aikido is to be strong?

Let's put it differently. If you are doing aikido (or any martial art for that matter) and you don't get stronger inside and outside, you must be doing something wrong. Think of it as a useful progress indicator rather than a goal in in own right.
