You may be right, in that strong objections often result from deep set insecurities.
However I am completely obsessed with Aikido
, and although it is not an 'ultimate martial art' (whatever that is), it definately offers ME things I have never found in any other martial art (though admittedly I've only done Karate, Ju Jitsu, Tang Soo do and Judo in addition to aikido).
P.S. can we leave this discussion thread alone now? it seems to have gotten us nowhere.
Happy training to whatever people choose
