Re: The purpose of Aikido?

. I got to Shodan (under the Aikikai) and I didn't see the point of working toward a higher rank. I was practicing the same material as my seniors and I could spend the rest of my aikido life working on my skills at my present rank. I consumed anything and everything aikido: books, videos, seminars, etc.
:/ In Aikikai Shodan only mean that you learned enough of the basics to finally start learning Aikido.
