One more thing.

You have posted that story a number of times. You must like it.

How do you interpret it?

Here I go hijacking another thread
I just like the point it makes which echoes Kisshomaru's comment that "my father was not a pacifist". Also, the point that Aikido is not a technical method in the sense of a particular type of joint manipulation. The mental dimension he mentions is interesting, but not all that useful, IMO, unless you hook it up with the right background.
