Competition has nothing to do with the spirit of Budo, it's not a subject of martial arts but a subject of fighting sports, therefore it doesn't belong here.There's a difference of course between a warrior and a sports man...
+1 Many many many discussions occur because of this... people have some kind of expectation of Aikido and as a result are sometimes disappointed or even frustrated.
Know what you are looking for or you will never know you may have already found it!

In a real fight:
* If you make a bad decision, you die.
* If you don't decide anything, you die.
Aikido teaches you how to decide.
