to tell you the truth, the first reason I take aikido is because of the defence purpose (It's hard to avoid that Steven Seagal plays a big role for this one). But as my training progress I realize that the teaching of aikido is the character development, turning our negative attitudes to the positive one, with the self-defense technique as its byproduct.

among all martial arts I have learned, only aikido that taught me to "give way" instead of "stop" or "block". I immediately interested with this teaching as the non-fighting mind of aikido brings me a new perception in understanding martial arts.
