Re: Just how real is violence? And where does Aikido stands in all of this?
My point with all this "bla,bla,bla" is that we´re mainly discussing "violence" as we know it from our civilized, organized, supervized with police and courts... the places where we usually carry on with our lives. We have jobs, food on the table, kids in private schools and it´s even enough to pay for hobbys and vacations, but that is NOT the reality of the vast majority of the rest of the world. New and unknown levels of violence are just arround the corner and one is most likely not to be prepared for it when leaving our comfort zone.
