Hello all, me again, newbie:

Is it wrong of me, although I am generally a calm and nice person, to be interested mainly in the martial side of aikido, and not so much, at this time at least, on the spiritual side.

I am in no way violent, but would like to train for 'use' of the art when comes time...

Wrong or right?
Nope, I don't see it as being wrong Andy. As others have said, people study aikido for many reasons: the martial aspects, the health aspects, the philosophical ascpects, etc. Just enjoy the journey.
