Re: Aikido Predator Mindset

I'm glad William posted that comment. Honestly, the modern romanticization of the word "predator" absolutely gives me a rash. A predator is an animal that kills to eat, not in self-defense, and certainly not because it's bored or drunk or wants to dominate or is just feeling mean. If you're going to engage in aggressive behavior, then own your reasons for doing so, and don't try to dress it up in a sexy label.
