I've been re-reading Sun Tzu's Art of War, and I came across this sentence (translated from french, my mother language) : 'winning all fights is not the highest achievement ; submitting the enemy without fighting IS the highest achievement'.
It made me think it was not absolutely true. In my opinion O Sensei created Aikido for an even higher purpose that could be summed up this way : 'making a friend out of your enemy and restoring general peace is the real achievement'.
Can you tell me if I'm right ?
