Re: Aikido and inner aggression

Aikido does provide opportunity to be part of an interaction where blame is useless. In life we often tell ourselves reasons why we are angry and really we are angry because we are angry. So Aikido does provide a way to look at interactions with no blame and thus no reason to become angry.

For me Aikido helps with the other things I do to deal with anger, self pity and other thought patterns that don't work for me anymore. Good luck and congrats on changing your life.
