Re: Integrity in our Aikido Community

While I see that anyone who calls what they practice Aikido may be a part of an Aikido Community, I am puzzled by the thought that the community has integrity.

inĚtegĚriĚty
noun \in-ˈte-grə-tē\
Definition of INTEGRITY
1
: firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values : incorruptibility
2
: an unimpaired condition : soundness
3
: the quality or state of being complete or undivided : completeness

Integrity is at its best as an individual trait. When looking at groups, organizations and communities, integrity is diluted at an exponential rate as more people are included.
