Re: Aikido and inner aggression

IMHO, Aikido does not directly work with your anger issues.

OTOH, it does provide an arena and a tool to look at issues.

To do Aikido, you have to learn not to take other's attack personally. You enter and blend with their attack, redirect it taking their balance without reactionary retaliation to do more harm.

Its a useful indirect metaphor and opportunity.
