It´s a hobby. A pastime for people that have spare time in their life. We do it because we enjoy it.
Funny sort of hobby as far as I am concerned.As far as enjoying it is concerned I do not go to the dojo to enjoy myself.If I want enjoyment I have a few beers, watch Laurel and Hardy, watch TV.Aikido is seious business, not a pastime imo. Cheers, Joe..
