Re: The Mental Side of Aikido?

Nujabes, if you are attracted to the philosophy of Aikido, then pursue it. Join a dojo or take some classes. Unless you are finding yourself in situations where you are being beaten up every day, the combat effectiveness of Aikido is mostly irrelevant. In all likelihood, your Aikido training would teach you to avoid conflict altogether, rather than teach you to defeat your enemy head on.
