Re: 105) Aikido- Martial Arts Hidden Within: June 2013
Interesting points, George.
The original blog contains words like dangerous, naive, idealistic, aggressor, breaking the spine, etc....words that lend to angry, fear based approach.
There is nothing wrong with this.
My approach is different....I tend to use words like connection, lose balance, Patience, tolerance...these words create a more peaceful approach.
A peaceful approach can address the core issue of Aikido which is self -defense just as a fear based approach does. Many paths...we all know... lead to the same place.
