Re: Aikido, Martial Arts & Sparring
I'd say sparring is more necessary as a tool for character forging than for the usually remote (for the average aikido practitioner) self defense or combative situations.
How people behaves when SHTF show whats really inside them and what they are made of. How many are ready to look inside this snakepit?
This is about as on point as one can get! Great post.
