Re: How can Aikido teach you discipline if you love it?

I wouldn't worry about it.
The discipline part has to do with sticking it out when you are on a plateau, feel like you are training and training and not making progress (which is a wall most of us hit after a few years and every few years thereafter but you might escape that - NONE of this is 100% universal!)....it has to do with regardless of the joy one finds in training, finding that button being pushed or that sore spot (metaphorically) being poked, whether by a training partner or sensei or whatever, and having the discipline to work through whatever it is in yourself that makes that thing be a button or sore spot....
